Become a wetlands protector in this week's activity. By picking up and quantifying litter, you can learn how to better protect our precious wetlands!
Learn to build a simple dip-net with items around the house in order to explore your pond!
In this Wetland Wednesday, we'll show how you can collect macroinvertebrates to help determine water pollution levels in your area!
With just a few common household items, you can build your own wetlands model and see how wetlands act as natural filters for our water!
For this Wetland Wednesday, join Garrett Gauthier, a Louisiana 4-H Wetland Ambassador, on a brief nature walk to learn about some of the common native plants and invasive plants found in Louisiana's wetlands. Then, you use the activity and leaf guide below to go on your own nature walk and make leaf rubbings!
There are different types of wetlands, and salinity is a big factor that determines what each looks like. In this activity, you'll investigate if you can detect changes in salinity.
In this Wetland Wednesday, discover why some animals seem to be made to live in the wetlands!
