You’ll have a couple opportunities to take in a northern Door County treasure full of different life in July and September. On July 31st, Lee Frelich, who is a University of Minnesota Center for Forest Ecology Director and a part-time Door County resident will discuss the current ecology of the Ephraim Swamp during a hike to a limited number of visitors. The swamp is considered a rare coastal wetland by the Niagara Escarpment, which houses a diverse list of plants and animals. Frelich will be bringing a wealth of knowledge, having authored over 160 publications with 200 co-authors from 23 countries. The Climate Change Coalition will do another hike led by Frelich and Chuck Lauter, who has lived on the edge of the swamp for years, on Saturday, September 25th. More information on the hikes can be found here.
