Class of 1918 Marsh-Audio Field trip
Listen to the stories about 20 topics relating to the marsh, produced and narrated by a group of dedicated people led by John Magnuson. Funding was provided by friends and colleagues who donated to the Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve in memory of Stanley Dodson.
The sound tracks for the Stanley Dodson audio field trip at the Class of 1918 Marsh were developed by the Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve in close collaboration with the Staff of the Preserve. John Magnuson, Emeritus Professor of Zoology and Limnology led the project, and 13 knowledgeable volunteers wrote and edited the stories and messages; Brenna Jones volunteered her voice and Rob Haggar of Haggar Audio Productions donated his time and facilities for the recordings. The project is one of the ways that the Lakeshore Nature Preserve and its friends bring nature to the campus and the community.
