Wetlands Backyard Activity Guide

Wetlands Activity Guide

Wetlands are amazing ecosystems and can be found all over the United States. They occur along the boundaries of streams, lakes, ponds, or even in large shallow holes that fill up with rainwater. In order to have a wetland, you need to have some low-lying land, add water, then mix in lots of plants that love having wet "feet" (roots) and finally add some animals. There are many kinds of wetlands, marshes, bogs, swamps, fens, and prairie potholes to name a few.
