Intro to Natural Areas Management

Remnant natural areas act as genetic banks for plant, animal, and insect diversity. How are these critical habitats being managed for the future? Join us as we visit a variety of managed ecosystems, including Lake in the Hills Fen, Black Partridge Woods and Waterfall Glen, to discuss current conservation challenges and strategies with site managers and volunteer stewards.
