Introductions to Wetlands - Focus on Salt Marsh

What is a wetland? Why do we care about them? How have people treated wetlands in the past? What are people doing to protect and restore wetlands? Students will explore these questions through a combination of guided discussion, video and presentation. Note: this can be a stand-alone program or combined with a salt marsh field trip.
