Wetlands in Winter: a Place of Quiet Beauty
Meet at the Eagle Marsh barn, 6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne. While many native plants of the area sleep in subtle beauty in winter, others have different survival strategies—and look very different than their summer selves. Join us on a hike to look for and identify our favorites. Dress for the trails and the weather.

Wednesday, January 21
9 to 10 a.m.
Short Hikes for Short Legs: Seeds, Grocery Store of the Marsh!
Meet at the Eagle Marsh barn, 6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne. (For children ages 3 to 5 and a responsible adult.) We’ll start in the barn exploring the variety of seeds found at Eagle Marsh. Then we’ll take a short hike to see how the marsh provides food, through its many seeds, for the animals that winter with us. Dress for the trails and the weather

Saturday, January 24
9:30 to 11 a.m.
Scat: Identifying Wetland Wanderers
Meet at the Eagle Marsh barn, 6801 Engle Road, Fort Wayne. Scat (poop) is a great way to identify who’s been on the marsh or on your property when no one was looking. We’ll start in the barn making scat models of animals common to this area, then take a hike to look for scat and other animal signs. Fun for all ages.  Dress for the trails and the weather
