Watersheds and Wetlands

Following an interactive demonstration of watershed function, students take to the trails and use a contour map to study how the shape of the land directs water flow. Compare wetland versus upland soils and learn to identify some wetland indicator plants. Play a game that demonstrates the importance of wetland protection.
