'Wade into Wetlands' online lesson

Students work at Phalen wetlands to help keep it healthy

Students from Community of Peace Academy help keep wetlands clean and healthy by removing trash and garlic mustard in the wetlands of Lake Phalen in St. Paul.

FMR is proud to conduct indoor and outdoor educational programs for approximately 2,000 youth annually. During this difficult time, we're striving to offer our educational resources online.

As they become available, we'll share new lessons that meet state standards on our main education activities page.

'Wade into Wetlands'

Even though most humans don't consider wetlands welcoming and pleasant places to visit, they're vital to the health of our environment. Learn about some of the different types of wetlands found in Minnesota and why are so important for both people and our planet.

Come explore wetlands with these videos, note sheets and activities.

And when you're done, please share your answers to the challenge question about the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers by sending an email to FMR youth coordinator Kate Clayton at kclayton@fmr.org.
