What a great way to combine community service with learning. Our service learning programs can be custom designed for your students. From learning about the habitat needs of Red-legged Frogs to discovering the nesting requirements of Bald Eagles, there are many choices for engagement at Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve.
Students will receive an overview of the Wetlands, why it is such a special ecosystem, and information about their specific area of study. Then the shovels come out, the gloves go on, and it is time to do some work in the field. Planting trees, removing non-native invasive species, cleaning up trails and helping to restore habitat are just a few of the service opportunities students have been involved with at the Preserve.
Programs last approximately two and one-half to three hours and cost $125 per class. Contact Diane Kearns
