Fens and Bogs: Hydrology, Biology and Ecological Restoration

  • Lamberton Lake Fen Nature Preserve 3118 Plaza Drive Northeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49525 United States (map)

Nature enthusiasts will get an in-depth, firsthand look at the unique hydrology and biology of bogs and fens and learn why these are among our most biodiverse natural areas. Justin Heslinga, Stewardship Director with the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, will lead participants on a moderately-difficult hike through these wetland habitats to expose participants to the techniques used to protect and restore these important ecosystems. Plants, animals and other natural features will be identified along the way. Please note: The entire 3-hour workshop will be held outdoors rain or shine.
