 Wetlands for Landowners: Exploring Michigan’s Wetlands Workshop

July 15th, 2023
10:00am-1:00pm Eastern

Gerald E Eddy Discovery Center, 17030 Bush Rd, Chelsea, MI

We’ll head out to the field to examine a range of wetland types up close, to help you recognize wetlands that might occur on your land. We’ll look at some distinctive wetland plants, and consider wetland characteristics that make for good herp habitat. Be sure to wear long pants and close-toed shoes—be prepared for mud and poison ivy!—and bring a hand lens or loupe if you have one.

This workshop is free and open to the general public, but space is limited. Click here to Register
