What's In A Swamp?
We've all heard of swamps. Maybe you have even ventured through a swamp or three. Or, maybe you are like many others who don’t know why anyone would ever willingly walk into a swamp, let alone want to experience it again. Join us for a talk with Sensing Nature Senior Ecologist Brian Lane as he reveals some interesting aspects of swamps, including things to look for, what tree species grow and thrive in swamps, and even some of the true swamp residents that call it home. Then, maybe you too will be lucky enough to see some of these wonderful creatures on your own swamp tromp.

This webinar is recommended for adults and families (suggested ages of 7 years old and up).

This program is sponsored by the Friends of Weedon Island. Our Friends support the Weedon Island Preserve through education, preservation and protection of its habitats, ecology, and cultural history. Learn more about our Friends at https://friendsofweedonisland.org/.
