County Parks Wetlands Tour

Event Dates: May 25, 2012 (All day)

 

LaGrange County Parks announces a special program to conclude May, National Wetlands Month. Friday, May 25, the tour will visit some of the significant wetlands in LaGrange County. Five major types of wetland are found within LaGrange County and play a vital role in managing water for native ecosystems.

The purpose of the tour is to explore what makes them a specific ecosystem rather than just a place that is moist or submerged. The tour will be a combination of riding and walking. The Tour will not be wading into the wetlands, but will be inspecting specimens along their edges.

To wander the wetlands, meet at Maple Wood Nature Center, 4550E 100S, at 9a May 25. Wetland Tour is anticipated to last 2.5 hours. Participants are recommended to bring binoculars, journals, cameras, field guides.

Pre-Registration is encouraged. Contact LaGrange County Parks lagrangecountyparks@yahoo.com, 854-2225.
