St. Joseph Wetland

INHS wetland staff have collaborated with the Champaign County Soil and Water Conservation District (CCSWCD) in the restoration of 67-acres of wetland on the edge of St. Joseph, Illinois, as well as educational outreach endeavors. Bird, botanical, wetland ecology, aquatic invertebrate investigations, and a month-long Bioblitz utilizing iNaturalist are recent community activities.
