Faith communities are sometimes called to environmental stewardship. For the Benedictine monks at Monastery Run addressing mine water pollution is part of their calling.

Walk 2-3 miles on the grounds of St. Vincent College and Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve at Saint Vincent College on a unique guided tour.

Learn about the passive wetland treatment system that mitigates mine water pollution at Monastery Run and what inspired the Benedictines to take on this project.

Dabble in birding, dragonfly netting, and plant identification, too.

🥪 Lunch included at the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve.
