Field Study: Wetland Habitats
|Dates:||September 17, 2019|
|Meets:||Tu from 10 AM to 1 PM|
|Location:||Main House Lecture Room 2|
Wet meadows and ponds are picturesque landscapes that provide vital food and habitat for many insects, amphibians, birds, and mammals. They also collect and store excess rainwater, reducing the likelihood of seasonal flooding of low-lying areas. Explore the distinctive ecology and common indicator species of wetland habitats and the birds that nest and feed there. Homeowners, master gardeners, landscape designers, and anyone who has a wet site on their property will benefit from this one-day field course. Dress for the weather; bring lunch, a water bottle, and binoculars; and be prepared for wet feet. Class size is limited.
Rain date for this class is Tuesday, September 24, 2019. This class qualifies for the following professional credits: 1 CNP credit with DNLA, ISA, and 3 NOFA AOLCP.
