Nature Fridays: Wetlands Day


Wetlands are areas of land that are covered in varying amounts of water throughout the year. This week, we want to educate people on the importance of wetlands and aquatic plants that are in the area. Kids can make their very own ‘observations book.’


There will be educational videos, themed colouring pages and a river walk to identify plants that grown within aquatic regions.
