Marsh Ecology

Students will learn to look at the "big picture" and see the marsh as an ecosystem, where mammals, such as the beaver, use the marsh as their habitat. They will look at macro-invertebrates collected from the marsh, focusing on animal adaptations and characteristics. Students also learn how aquatic plants are adapted to live in the water and fill different niches.
