WAUKESHA COUNTY WETLAND TALK
A t T h e N e w B e r l i n P u b l i c L i b r a r y | C o m m u n i t y R o o m
Thursday, November 9th | 7:00 PM
Learn about the ecological benefits of wetlands from Professional Wetland Scientist, Aaron Feggestad. Aaron has over 20 years of experience studying, restoring, and managing wetland resources throughout the Midwest.
Waukesha County is home to a wide array ofwetlands - areas of land that are covered with water or saturated with water for varying periods of time during the year – owing to its unique geographic and geologic setting. This talk will provide a review on some of the best examples of wetland natural communities occurring on publicly accessible lands within the county.
Learn about the ancient bog relics that conjure stepping back in time, the calcareous fens maintained by constant seepage of mineral rich groundwater, and the last vestiges of the formerly expansive wet prairie and sedge meadow complexes of the Scuppernong Marsh, and more. The discussion will highlight the importance of these and other wetlands on the landscape
and the role of ecological stewardship and restoration for protecting our remaining wetland resources.
