In December 1995, a Boy Scout troop, under the direction of refuge interpreter Ed Moyer, plugged a large drain tile on the Opus Marsh along the Minnesota River in Bloomington. A long neglected wetland was reborn. The program “Wilderness in a Wetland” is a photographic exploration of this unique 100 acre marsh over 15 years. The photographs and narrative document the remarkable recovery of this special wetland.
