The Springfield Conservation Nature Center will present "Wild Wonderful Wetlands" for ages 12 and up.
Wetlands are far from wastelands as they are so often dipicted. Wetlands are not only home to many beautiful and rare plants, birds, and other critters, they are essential for controlling storm water runoff, reducing erosion, and filtering out pollutants before slowly releasing water into the ground. Volunteer naturalist and nature photographer Bob Ball will share the many incredible wonders found in swamps, bogs, and marshes in Missouri and through the United States.
Registration is required. Information at 888-4237.
