Many children and adults do not know
what a wetland really is, so that’s the place to start. Although wetlands are often wet, a wetland might not be wet year-round. In fact, many wetlands are only seasonally wet. Many
wetlands serve as transition zones between land and water where the flow of water, the cycling of nutrients, and the energy of the sun produce
a rich variety of plant and animal life. Wetlands are home to specially adapted water-loving plants and promote the development of
characteristic wetland soils.
