About this Event

Wetland Sedges and Grasses, Holland Marsh Crown Land Area, with Steve Varga on Saturday, July 6th 2019 (9:50am)

This workshop aims to teach skills in identification of wetland graminoids. In the morning we will head east into the centre of the Crown Land Area. In the afternoon we will be exploring sedge fens. These are the largest public holdings in the Holland Marsh. This marsh was once the largest wetland in southern Ontario, but today only 35% of the wetland remains with the rest converted to market gardens. The crown lands support a wide variety of wetlands including deciduous and mixed swamps, thicket swamps, cattail marshes, open water marshes and provincially rare sedge fens. It has a good diversity of sedges, grasses and rushes. Last year we found 29 sedge species, 22 grass species and 5 rush species.

Note: For those that register through Eventbrite, we have allowed for a refund period of up to 7 days before the trip. That means you may still sign up for trips ahead of time even if you aren’t sure of your plans, and as long as you request a refund through Eventbrite before that time, you will receive a full refund. Cancelling your Eventbrite ticket also allows us to open your spot on the trip to people on the wait list. If an event is listed as SOLD OUT, you can still put yourself on the wait list, and if someone else gives up their spot, we will contact the waitlist to offer the spot(s). As always, you will need to sign the trip waiver, which from now on will be provided by the trip rep at the start of every trip.
