Hands-on wetlands experience for northwest Ohio classrooms


The Ohio Department of Natural Resources invites all northwest Ohio teachers to resister students for the H2Ohio Students Take Action program. H2Ohio Students Take Action is a hands-on experience with wetland restoration projects for students in grades 6-12. 

H2Ohio naturalist Kara Freimark will provide an in-person or virtual presentation on the importance of wetlands and how these H2Ohio projects help water quality. After the presentation, students get to take action through water quality testing and investigation, litter cleanup, building nesting boxes, invasive species removal, seed collection, rearing native wetland plants, stream quality monitoring, wildlife surveys and more. Freimark also leads students by kayak through the waters that play an important role in the Great Lakes ecosystem so that students can learn about ecology, watersheds, natural history and human impacts on the water.

There is no cost to take part in the program. Sign up using this form. Email Kara Freimark with questions.
