Friends of the St. Clair River is hosting a series of “Wetland Wanderings” summer programs for hands-on, family-friendly fun at the Wetlands County Park on Wednesday, June 26, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. The program will be repeated July 24, August 28 and September 25. Amy Meeker-Taylor, Friends’ Environmental Educator, will lead an introduction to wetland ecology and a macroinvertebrate collection and identification lesson. Participants will collect and identify macroinvertebrates – insects, mollusks and crustaceans – living in the wetlands. Since the wetlands are a new urban park created from an industrial brownfield, these scores are important for helping track the wetland’s health over time.
