What is a wetland classroom?
The state-of-the-art wetland classroom at the Hackberry Flat Center will offer students the experience of visiting a wetland and learning about wetlands in an arid region of the country. They will put on rubber boots, sweep the watery habitat with a net and bring the collected aquatic “critters” back to the classroom. They then will get a closer look through field scopes and projection scopes of their critters. This will give them a unique hands-on approach to the value of a wetland.
How do I schedule the wetland classroom?
Please read the "Field Trip Planning Guide for Youth Educators" and then contact the Outdoor Classroom Coordinator.
