Wetland Wonders - Saturday, Sept 9: 1 pm - 3pm

Tour of the Northern Blair Rec Center Wetlands just north of Altoona,
Pa. Trip leader: Angela Spagnoli

Visit the Wetland Demonstration Area behind the Northern Blair County
Recreation Center. JVAS is supporting this wetlands restoration project by
Angela Spagnoli. This is a nearly 15-acre wetland, consisting of vernal
pools (seasonally flooded) and year-round inundated pools — making it a
vital ecosystem for many amphibian and reptile species, plants, and
birds. Come
learn about this project, the importance of this wetland and how Angie
plans to create a healthier, more functional habitat, as well as her plans
for community outreach. Contact Angela for more details: <aas5101...>

Directions to Northern Blair County Rec Center, 4080 E Pleasant Valley
Blvd, Altoona.

Pull into the rec center and drive behind the building. There is a dirt
road that runs parallel to the river alongside the ball field. Look for
the wooden sign which says "Wetlands Demonstration Area." Pull into the
grass right beside the sign.
