Wetlands are vibrant ecosystems, among the most rich and diverse of all natural habitats. We’ll visit a nearby pond. There we’ll see evidence of beavers at work; we’ll catch water bugs and discover some of the amazing adaptations of aquatic invertebrates. If time permits, we’ll use a digital microscope to showcase how bugs breathe, swim and catch their prey. We’ll also listen and look for, the many wetland birds that inhabit this beautiful wetland.
