This event occurred in the past.


Engeldinger Marsh is a rare 14,000 year old geological and ecological gem that was formed during the last ice age. Here, you will find prairie potholes and sedge meadows as well as remarkable plant and animal biodiversity within the rich habitat mosaic of Chichaqua. Join us for a winter morning of restoration as we work to remove woody vegetation invading the land surrounding the marsh.
