Brookfield, Mo. – Wetlands are valuable ecosystems that store water, reduce flooding, provide habitat for wildlife and offer autumn waterfowl hunting opportunities. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will offer a free Wetland Management Field Day 5 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28, at the Quinn Hunting Lodge near Rothville, Mo.

MDC wetland managers will lead a field trip to wetlands and provide advice about habitat management, maintenance, controlling problem animals or plants, and other topics. Participants will learn about the benefits and challenges of wetland restoration.

Participants are asked to register by calling the MDC office at Chillicothe, 660-646-6122. Soft drinks and snacks will be provided. Attendees with specific questions about wetlands are welcome to provide those when registering. MDC staff will then address the topic at one of the field trip stops.

The Quinn Hunting Lodge is reached off Missouri 11 about six miles south of Brookfield, then east on Viaduct Road (County Road 204) about 1.5 miles. The turn off into the lodge is just east of West Yellow Creek.
