Bogs and Fens and Mires, Oh My: The Ecology of the Heath
September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Did you know that Topsham has a ‘heath,’ related to the moors found in Great Britain? Master Naturalist Fred Cichocki will describe the ecology of the 12-acre heath located at Cathance Rive Nature Preserve in Topsham and other sphagnum moss wetlands. Enhance your fall excursion to Topsham’s Heath by learning about this unique ecosystem.
Fred Cichocki (Ph.D., University of Michigan) has investigated and taught evolutionary biology and ecology at various colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada, with an emphasis on “big picture” synthesis. In addition, he has been a natural history museum curator and is co-founder of the Maine Master Naturalist Program.
