There’s no place like home! Wetland animals of all kinds need a safe place to live. Discover how they use their beaks, claws, and paws to weave, burrow, and build in our local wetlands. Become a water engineer and design a nest, den, or lodge of your own. Play earth friendly games and create wetland-inspired artwork.
Living with Water
For campers entering 3rd – 5th grades in the fall
June 20 -24 – FULL
Get your hands wet while exploring all about water! Discover how people and animals have used water throughout history and how water affects our resources. Wade into a seasonal pond, i.d. aquatic plants and animals, and investigate their adaptations. Make and decorate your own bracelet out of the wetland plant tule, and make a traditional ring and pin game.
Discover the Wetlands summer camp activities are led by Yolo Basin Foundation staff, docents and volunteers. For more information contact Heidi Satter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
