Marshes, vernal pools, and swamps (PLE Day 2)
After a morning of wetland classification, the Pymatuning wetlanders had a tour of Morgan Swamp led by the Nature Conservancy’s Alex Czayka. We had a fantastic time, and the students were introduced to range of wetland types including marshes, swamps, and vernal pools. They also had the opportunity to learn about the effects of invasive species, and the ongoing management efforts employed by the Nature Conservancy in the preserve.
