Black Lake Bog SNA, an Interstate Natural Area: A focus on updating and expanding the plant species list for the SN

Saturday, July 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Leader: AmberBeth VanNingen, MN DNR SNA Ecologist

Black Lake Bog Scientific and Natural Area (SNA) is in rural eastern Pine County, approximately 2.5 hours north of St. Paul and 1 hour south of Duluth. The SNA is part of a larger interstate natural area encompassing more than 3,600 acres in Pine County, MN and Douglas County, WI.

Our focus will be on updating and expanding the plant list for the site, but other activities could focus on insect or bird inventory or taking GPS points of the boundary signs depending on group time and interest.

As parking is limited and the site remote, we will likely choose a meeting place along I-35 or Hwy 23 and carpool. We will meet around 9:00 a.m. and work through the day. Bring a lunch, appropriate clothing, sun and tick protection, water, and field guides.

This field trip is open to all and pre-registration is required. You can register for this field trip either through Ken Arndt <ken.arndt@mnrinc.us> or you can contact AmberBeth VanNingen <amberbeth.vanningen@state.mn.us> with any other questions and also to register.
