Join Northwoods Land Trust, along with Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conservation biologists Richard Staffen and Rori Paloski, to learn about the importance of ephemeral ponds.

Ephemeral ponds are a type of wetland that are temporary in nature. They fill in the spring from snowmelt and rain, and slowly dry up as the summer heat arrives.

The event starts with a 30-minute presentation at the NWLT office in downtown Eagle River, then the group will head out to view an ephemeral pond and discuss the DNR’s new Salamander and Ephemeral Pond Monitoring pilot project. The field trip portion will involve hiking around a half mile in length for approximately one hour.

Please register for this event by Monday, April, 29th. Space is limited!

To register for the event, please register online, contact the Northwoods Land Trust office at 715-479-2490, or email Troy Walters, Outreach & Monitoring Coordinator, at
