Overview

Life in a Wetland

Go on a journey through the swampy marshes and cattail-filled fields that are found where water and land combine. Using the Florida Everglades as an example, Life in a Wetland examines the physical features, processes, and many different species of plants and animals that make up a unique wetland ecosystem. Find out about the impact of humans on this once-pristine ecosystem and what is being done to save it. Visit this land of mangrove trees, wading birds, and alligators and learn what makes it so special.
