This story inside is both interactive and educational, bringing awareness to our ecology and informing the participants about how the eco system is connected – the wetlands, oceans, rivers, streams, lakes, deltas and estuaries need to be preserved to protect our fish, wildlife and ourselves. Wetlands are much like ourkidneys, they filter the water in lakes, rivers, and streams, reduce pollution and prevent flooding.
