The UT Forest Resources AgResearch and Education Center and the UT Arboretum Society will present a program on wetlands, 'Construction Techniques and the Value of Little Bitty Wetlands' June 16, 6:00 p.m. 8:00 p.m. This is both a walking and hands-on teaching event.

The talk will focus on the benefits of small wetlands and how to construct them. Participants will meet at the UT Arboretum parking lot, 901 S. Illinois Avenue, Oak Ridge, and walk about a quarter mile to the Valley Road Wetlands from the UT Arboretum parking lot.

Presenting the program are John Byrd, Clinch River Environmental Studies Organization (CRESO) biologist; Steve Forbes, ARCADIS/civil engineer; and Andrea Ludwig, Assistant Professor in Biosystems Engineering & Soil Science at the University of Tennessee. In partnership with the University of Tennessee Arboretum, we will provide program participants with information on how they can construct their own wetlands and what they might expect to hop, fly, walk, or crawl into them.


Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public.
