What is a fen? Why is it poor? And what beautiful creatures live there? Join Sparky Stensaas, author of six books on the natural history of the North Woods, to explore the magical Namakagon Fen State Natural Area 10 miles east of Cable. Meet at the parking area for the Forest Lodge Nature Trail and carpool from there. Dress for the weather, sun, and bugs, and wear shoes that can get wet. Expect unstable footing and no trails. 1:00-4:00 p.m.
