Learn About Ephemeral Ponds: Their Importance & Monitoring
May 1 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Join Northwoods Land Trust (NWLT) along with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conservation biologists Richard Staffen and Rori Paloski on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 from 1-4 pm to learn about the importance of ephemeral ponds. Ephemeral ponds are a type of wetland that are temporary in nature. They fill in the spring from snowmelt and rain, and slowly dry up as the summer heat arrives.
The event starts with a 30-minute presentation at the NWLT office in downtown Eagle River and then we will head out to view an ephemeral pond and discuss the DNR’s new Salamander and Ephemeral Pond Monitoring pilot project. The field trip portion will involve hiking around a half mile in length for approximately one hour.
To register for the event, please register online (see below) or contact the NWLT office at 715-479-2490 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 29. Space is limited.
