FotSJR Wetland Partnership Project Goes "Wet N' Wild at the Wellfield"

The wetland partners held their second outreach event, “Wet N’ Wild at the Wellfield”, today at the Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart, Indiana. The event was a great success! There were around 50 people in attendance and the partnership made some great connections with landowners and interested residents living in the Christiana Creek sub-watershed. The Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy, FotSJR and Christiana Creek Coalition sponsored the event with support and attendance from Southwest Michigan Planning Commission, Natural Resource Conservation Service in Indiana and Michigan, St. Joseph County Indiana Parks, St. Joseph River Basin Commission, the Elkhart Soil and Water District, City of Elkhart and several others. The project partners are now discussing how they can build off the event and ensure that the model data gets into the hands of conservation organizations, city planners, public officials, drain commissioners, etc., to help implement wetland conservation activities throughout the Christiana Creek sub-watershed and surrounding areas. There will be four (4) more outreach events planned over the next year.
