Minesing Reeds Fall 2014

The Friends of Minesing Wetlands have captured some of the work that has been done in the Minesing Wetlands during the summer and fall of  2014 in our latest edition of the Minesing Reeds.

Enjoy stories from the Minesing Wetlands including Mike Francis’ day searching for rare orchids in the Minesing fen complex.  Kristyn Ferguson reports on the land acquisition of a “piece of the Minesing” along the southern portion of the Mad River.

You will also read about how the Minesing Wetlands was “spruced up” as part of the TD Tree Days.

Please enjoy the Fall 2014 edition of the Minesing Reeds!
