Camp Lake State Natural Area Paddle with Naturalist John Bates
July 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Naturalist and Author John Bates as we explore Camp Lake and Pines State Natural Area, which features an undisturbed, wild, 37-acre
lake set within a lovely pine forest. The extremely clear water of the lake supports an unusual community of plants as well as a vibrant
bird community. Joining us will be Greg Sass, Fisheries Research Team Leader in the Office of Applied Science for the WDNR. Dr. Sass has
conducted research on the importance of woody habitat in lakes, specifically on Camp Lake and nearby Little Rock Lake, and he’ll also discuss
how Camp lake has evolved after the drought in the mid 2000s as well as another recent experiment there, too. We’ll sit under a pine canopy
in between the two lobes of the lake and enjoy the peace of this wild place for lunch. This program is sponsored by the Tom and Barbara
Olson Education Fund. Register by 7/18. $50 ($45 members).
