Beneath the Surface: The Evolution of Lake Helen

Lake Helen outdoors at Rieman Gardens with a lake with water lilies and plants

Wednesday, August 18, 11:00 AM – 11:45

Join Horticulturist Kara Hetrick and Water Garden Consultant Jamie Beyer of Midwest Waterscapes for a fascinating outdoor Q&A about Lake Helen. Learn a little about its history and development, then get the soupy scoop about all the living things that have transformed this little lake – from territorial geese and spreading duckweed to beautiful waterlilies, lotus, and the addition of fish species to help maintain ecosystem balance.

Registration with pre-payment is required by Monday, August 16. Come prepared for an outdoor program.
