Explore Urban Wetland Ecology

September 26, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join Friends of the Mississippi River ecologist Karen Schik and Washington Conservation District’s Angie Hong to learn about the fascinating ecology of a suburban wetland!

We will explore the plant life in and around Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park’s wetlands, learn about the important role these plants play in providing habitat and filtering pollutants from water. We’ll also use dip nets to get a closer look at macroinvertebrates living in the marsh, and discuss what these tiny creatures reveal about the impacts of water pollution.

FMR recently began a new program to restore this beautiful landscape, event participants will learn about and be invited to future restoration outings with the ecologists, or other ways to get involved with FMR!

If you’d like to register for this educational tour, please email Lindsay at lhefferan@fmr.org with your interest and contact info.
