Thursday Night Nature: Wetland Ecosystems (Virtual Program)

Thursday, June 4 7:00 pm
Thursday, June 4 8:00 pm


Wetlands are an often overlooked and underappreciated ecosystem, which is unfortunate because they are incredibly beautiful, rich in biodiversity, and have many ecological benefits! Jessica Schmit is a research assistant at the Winous Point Marsh Conservancy in northwestern Ohio. She will share the many benefits of wetlands, offer a glimpse into their wild inhabitants and discuss the importance of native species for biodiversity.

Presented By: Jessica Schmit
Jessica Schmit is a New Jersey native and Delaware Valley University graduate who talks way too fast, especially when it’s about something she loves, like wetlands! She is most comfortable in waders and feels a little weird when she wears normal pants. Jess has worked on research projects all over the U.S. in different wetland habitats, from the Florida Everglades to the swamps of southern Illinois, the California Delta and in the marshes of Ohio. Working in these unique habitats has given her a great appreciation for the animal and plant life that can be discovered there. She is passionate about protecting these special places and sharing that love with others. Jess has an unhealthy obsession with birds and making terrible puns.
