Wetland Detectives Training Workshop II – Outdoor Observation

Date:
Saturday, May 30, 2015 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
The second workshop in our Wetland Detective public training series will be outdoors! Participants will have the chance to explore a nearby wetland site where we will practice amphibian, bird, and plant monitoring skills presented during February and March workshops. And if you were unable to attend our February and March workshops, that’s OK! We still want to you to join us. You will find that wetland monitoring is a great excuse to be outside taking in the sights and sounds of spring.
