2016 Experience

At the beginning, we even didn’t know the function of wetlands to the ecosystem exactly, however, in the end, we could explain the Bay’s rating in areas from habitat, to water quality, to wildlife with a simple poster. We evolved from students to little scientists that could educate others about the world in which we live. You see, it is definitely an unbelievable leap.
