Register Now For Pike Conservation District May 14 Wetlands Are Wonderful Identification Workshop

Pike County Conservation District is hosting a Wetlands Are Wonderful Identification Workshop on May 14 at Camp Spears, 143 Nichecronk Pd., Dingmans Ferry, PA 18328 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.

Wetlands are an integral part of the environment here in Northeast PA, serving many purposes for the ecosystem. 

Wetlands Are Wonderful is a basic course on the identification of wetland hydrology, hydric soils, and plant identification. 

This program will provide the average citizen of Pike County with the information that they need to know regarding wetlands on their property. 

By understanding how wetlands work, landowners can protect the ecosystems in their own backyard. 

Mike Leggerio, Biologist, US Army Corp of Engineers will be presenting this program along with Ellen Enslin, CPESC, Program Manager from PCCD. 

The program will begin in a classroom setting, then proceed into the field, exploring a bog via the boardwalk trail.

Sunscreen, bug spray, and waterproof shoes are all suggested, but there will be no deep-water wading. All in attendance will receive helpful handouts and laminated plant guides. 

There will also be a raffle for everyone registered to win wetland identification guides.

Registration for this event is free but requested by May 10th. 

To register and for more information [when available], visit the Pike County Conservation District or Facebook page

Questions should be directed to Devan George at PCCD, 570-226-8220 or dgeorge@pikpa.org.
