Forest Ecology Talk and Nature Hike – Sept. 20, 2014
Join us on Saturday morning, September 20, from 10 am – 12 noon for a presentation on Missouri’s Forest Ecology followed by a guided hike along Innsbrook’s Lake Konstanz nature trail. Our guest speaker will be Hank Stelzer from the University of Missouri Forestry Extension who will share a history of Missouri Forests along with what to look for in a healthy forest ecosystem we so value at Innsbrook. Our featured nature hike will be along the gentle Lake Konstanz Trail which in about 1.5 miles passes through several micro-biomes with relatively diverse flora and fauna. We hope to have time before and during the hike for open discussion. Come prepared for rain or shine with morning refreshments provided. Sorry, no four-legged companions this time, even though the trail travels just above the IBK Lachenhund Dog Park. Please RSVP to receive location and parking info.
