Wetland Wonders

Where are the Great Blue Herons nesting? Can the wetlands here support a heron rookery? Students will investigate the plants and animals living in the wetlands and visit the heron rookery. They will also craft solutions to help the Great Blue Herons and evaluate how effective those solutions might be.
