Wetlands provide perfect arenas for nature study. Discover Nature in Water and Wetlands explores the properties, processes, and phases of water and the plant and animal life associated with it, from trees, cattails, and ferns to dragonflies, salamanders, turtles, and beavers. With just a few essentials, such as a field notebook, hand lens, and bug box, readers will find both straightforward information and all kinds of activities to uncover the fascinating, diverse ecosystem that surrounds our ponds, swamps, and other watery places.
The Discover Nature series combines dozens of simple, nonintrusive activities with detailed illustrations and informative text to provide a fun and friendly introduction to hands-on nature study.
