Wet and Wild: The Hydrology and Biodiversity of Wetlands
"Wet & Wild: The Hydrology and Biodiversity of Wetlands" is a site all about wetlands. It defines what a wetland is and describes a variety of different types of wetlands; bogs, marshes,swamps, and riparians. Included are water characteristics in the different types of wetlands as well as the unique and diverse plant and animal life that may be found there. The roles and functions of wetlands are also discussed. Visitors to this site are then introduced to our own school campus wetland and the study and research that students conduct there. Included in this site are an interactive game identifying animal footprints and a variety of activities that others could do in wetland areas near their homes or schools. Visitios are also invited and encouraged to submit for publication on the site information and data on their own local wetland areas.
