Neighbor Nights Have you been to National Great Rivers Research and Education Center facility? Are you curious about the many ways in which the organization works on the river? Would you like to meet some of the staff and have the opportunity to ask questions and take a look around? If so, then please join us for Neighbor Nights @NGRREC. Neighbor Nights will take place on the first Tuesday of every month. From 5:30-8 p.m., NGRREC will be open for you to come and go as you please. Feel free to explore our lobby, our native landscaping and/or take a stroll up to our green roof. A tour of the entire building will take place at 6 p.m., and a short presentation on a different river project each month with start at 7 p.m. Attend one or both of these, or just drop by for a bit! Upcoming Event Please join NGRREC's Field Biologist Megan Cosgriff as she discusses how the invasive species, Japanese hops, poses a major threat to floodplain forest ecosystems. Come learn why this species is detrimental to forest health and what researchers and managers are doing to combat this aggressive plant. This month's classroom display will assist landowners in identifying Japanese hops and will feature NGRREC’s Japanese hops research and projects.
