Amazing Wetlands: Exploring Ecosystems 6/21/19


The Nature Explorers made a fine discovery during their journey to the vernal pool at Heald and Bradley Ponds Reserve on May 9th.

Amazing Wetlands: Join the Lakes Environmental Association and the Greater Lovell Land Trust as they embark on a field trip exploring and comparing different watery places.


Wetlands provide a myriad of vital ecosystem functions and unparalleled wildlife habitat but are often considered wasted space or places that need filling in. You will visit a floating bog, forested swamp, vernal pool, and other wet places to learn about how they function, how they differ, and why they are so special to Maine wildlife and to us. Space is limited. You are going to make a mess mucking about, please come prepared with shoes and clothing that can get wet and dirty, as well as drinking water, snacks, and a lunch as you will be making a day of it! 



Friday, June 21, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
