Wetlands for Landowners: Exploring Michigan’s Wetlands Workshop
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
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 event is free and open to the public, but space is limited.
