Wetland Discovery

Read our COVID-19 guidelines by clicking this banner before visiting one of our parks. We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and this page is updated as adjustments are made.

Staying dry is not guaranteed when we dip into the world of wetlands!  Students learn about roles, interactions and adaptations that occur in the wetland ecosystem.  With the dip of a net, we explore living and non-living components of this rich environment and how it all works together.  Students become biologists for a day, helping to determine if we have a healthy wetland by examining factors like water chemistry and invertebrate populations.
