Beyer Trail Expedition

Saturday, August 8, 2020

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: Lake City Greenway (Beyer Farm Trail) Warsaw, Ind

Get ready to get your hands dirty! Bring your family and join us at the Beyer Trail Expedition to learn about wetlands and how important they are for clean water. We’ll be talking about Warsaw’s water quality efforts, and sampling for macroinvertebrates (otherwise known as water bugs!)

During the hike, Ryan Workman (MS4 coordinator with the City of Warsaw Stormwater Utility) will discuss the stormwater mitigation efforts on Beyer Trail, and the importance of wetlands for water quality. Chuck Harvuot (from Indiana Master Naturalist) will conclude the tour with a look at macroinvertebrates found in the wetland and what they say about the health of that environment.

Meet at the entrance by Community Life Center-United Pentecostal Church (825 N Harrison St, Warsaw, IN 46580). Participants should be prepared to walk the length of the trail and back during the hike.

This event is underwritten by Zimmer Biomet and sponsored by City of Warsaw, IN and Visit Kosciusko County (Kosciusko County Convention, Recreation and Visitors Commission).
