The City of Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation and IPFW’s Environmental Resources Center (ERC) are collaborating to teach community members about the ecology of northeastern Indiana. Come learn about the natural history of northeastern Indiana from IPFW Department of Biology faculty in Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation’s new “Nature Series.”

On January 11, Robert Gillespie will present “The Rivers of Fort Wayne: Water Quality, River Behavior, and Aquatic Residents.” ERC director, Bruce Kingsbury, will speak at the final event, “Urban Ecology: The Wildlife of Fort Wayne,” on February 8.
