World Wetlands Day river walk

Wetlands are considered the most biologically-diverse of all ecosystems. The theme of this year’s World Wetlands Days is “Biodiversity in Wetlands.” Even though there are no wetlands on the High Bridge State Park property, there are vernal pools.

Unaware of what a vernal pool is? Come take a dip into this informative program that showcases the importance of biodiversity in wetlands.

The event will be held Sunday, Feb. 2, from 1-2:30 p.m. The event is free and suitable for children. For more information contact the park office at (434) 315-0457 or visit http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/park-event-info?id=HB190015-00.
