The next breakfast program by the Environmental Professionals Network (EPN), set for July 10, will take you on a walking tour of the Lower Olentangy River in Columbus. You’ll learn about wildlife, forestry, invasive species, water quality and the benefits of lowhead dam removal. You’ll visit CFAES’s Wilma H. Shiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, check out invasive-species removal and elm research projects in Tuttle Park, learn about the 5th Avenue dam removal and river restoration process, and get a close-up look at a field collection of aquatic macroinvertebrates. Registration is open to both EPN members and the public. Find out more.
CFAES’s Mažeika Sullivan, director of the Shiermeier wetland park and one of the walk’s guides, talks about the facility in the video above.
