Would you like to learn about Ecosystems and Restoration ecology and fungi? Well, you can attend environmental education workshops this Fall on these subjects held by the Louisiana Master Naturalists Northeast Group.

I’m sorry we missed the second round of LMNNe certification presentations, as the subjects were all very interesting and pertinent, but I’m thrilled to share information about the forthcoming workshops on Restoration Ecology and Fungi! I love Dr. Bette Kauffman’s image of a White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) running through the water at West Monroe’s Restoration Park!

Ecosystems & Restoration Ecology, Sept. 14, 8:30 – 2:30

IMGP3045 72-12Dr. Joydeep introduces us to our field work in Kiroli Park at our August 2018 workshop.

Once again, Dr. Joydeep Battacharjee of ULM will lead this workshop. We will begin in Kiroli Park, as we did last year, but he is going to look at trail options. Kiroli has several, so we might walk a different trail than we did last year.

The classroom portion of the workshop will again be in West Monroe. I don’t have a space reserved for that yet, but I’m looking.

Over our lunch break, we’ll move to Restoration Park and reconvene in the pavilion at the main entrance, 700 Downing Pines Road, for our afternoon field work.

It can still be pretty hot in September, and that’s why the 8:30 a.m. start. My apologies to those who drive from greater distances.
