Wetland Ecosystems

We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed. For more details on our response to COVID-19 please click this banner.

    Students explore a wetland ecosystem in this field study.  Using tools provided, students apply pond study techniques to observe common and not-so-common organisms that live in, on and around wetlands. We investigate threats to wetland ecosystems and the southwest Alberta watershed.  This leads to discussing water conservation and prevention of non-native plant species invasions.  We also discuss how protecting natural landscapes benefits everyone.
