Fond du Lac - 13 Moons website

28 University Road
Cloquet , MN 55720

Wetlands through the Seasons Workshop Series

This is the first workshop in a series of three centered on the cultural and ecological importance of wetlands. Wetlands are an undervalued resource for their incredible contributions to ecological health and Ojibwe cultural practices. Throughout the series there will be a common thread of cultural and ecological significance of wetlands, while each workshop will have a different natural resource focus. The focus of this first workshop will be amphibians and the importance of wetlands to their life cycle. We will be learning to identify frogs and toads, and using our skills out in the field! Get your water boots ready, and come hang out with us in some wetlands! Bring a bag lunch! Light refreshments will be provided.

The course cost is $25 and includes course manuals and supplies.
