Freshwater Wetlands: Habitats of Change

September 26, 2020, 10:00 am - 11:00 am

| Free

Did you know there are freshwater and saltwater wetlands? Seasonal freshwater wetlands attract a lot of critters, but you better be quick! Freshwater wetlands that hold water year-round provide habitat for a diversity of plants and animals, while also serving as buffers for flooding, filters for pollution and other important roles.  Both are threatened by sea-level rise and increased development along our coasts. Join us for a tour of the freshwater wetlands on Skidaway Island and learn how to identify these environments, why they are so important, and how citizen scientists collect water quality data to better understand the ecological health of our wetlands
