Environmental Group Presents at USDA Wetlands Event

Earlier this summer, our Environmental Group presented at a U.S. Department of Agriculture “Working with Wetlands” field day at Vic Rogers Farm in Benton Harbor, Michigan. Attendees included local farmers in Berrien County, various local conservation program representatives, and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) staff.

We were thrilled to present our ongoing restoration project in Benton Harbor which included adaptive management of a wetland site to meet MDEQ wetland restoration requirements. The management issues presented to the attendees included the creation of turtle and other wildlife habitat structures, invasive species control, and selection of wetland plantings for successful vegetation establishment.
