Muckin' around the Ephemeral Wetlands of the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve

Updated: Apr 27

Join us as our friend Rosemary Bauman brings us along as she mucks around the ephemeral wetlands of the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve. We find all kinds of critters such as salamanders, side-swimmers, dragonflies, flatworms, native bees, and even a pregnant doe! We learn all about the importance of wetlands and similar environments, and appreciate the beauty of this wonderful ecosystem hidden away right in the middle of urban Louisville.

It's a full time job that keeps her very busy, but it definitely seems very rewarding and fulfilling. There's hours of articles to read, so please check it out!
