“providing scientists the research opportunities to study the function of wetlands”
Sedge Meadow is a living laboratory designed to provide scientists the research opportunities to study the function of wetlands. Formerly part of the Des Plaines River Wetlands Demonstration Project, these controlled, experimental wetlands were constructed where abandoned farm fields and gravel pits once stood. The preserve has been restored to its natural state and is now thriving with prairies, meadows and fully functioning wetlands that provide flood control, wildlife habitat and improved water quality for the adjacent Des Plaines River.
