Ephemeral Ponds Study

"Orientation Session for Wisconsin Ephemeral Ponds Project
Thursday, November 8, 2007. 7pm. Volunteers are necessary to monitor these temporary but critically important ponds; this will be a chance to see what is involved. Attending will not obligate but will inform you about the project and what is necessary. You may then decide if you want to attend a comprehensive training session at a later date. You may choose to map and monitor at Bong or other public lands, your own land, or other private lands (with landowner permission). As a volunteer you would start in March. Richard Bong State Recreation Area, 26313 Burlington Rd, Kansasville, Kenosha County. Call Beth Goeppinger, 262-878-5607. Subjects: Nature, Environment [E-51059]"
The above is from: http://www.wisconlin...ect=Environment .
There is another orientation session on November 15 at 6 PM, in Racine at River Bend Nature Center, 3600 N. Green Bay Road.
I am not sure who is sponsoring this project, the WI DNR or UW or whomever, but it does sound like something that might be interesting to get involved with. At the very least, you might find a source for fairy shrimp.

Specific info on the ephemeral ponds study is here:
Gail Epping Overholt is the contact person: email@example.com (414-290-2434). I do not see any info on upcoming orientation sessions, other than they will be held in Nov/Dec/Jan. I went to the Bong session in November. You can certainly volunteer without attending an orientation session.

What happens at a Bong session, if I may be so bold?
