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.
