Spend the morning in one of the most productive ecosystems on the planet! During this class participants will visit the salt marsh on NASA's restricted Wallops Island. Participants will observe the wildlife that call the marsh home, learn about food webs, marsh formation and tidal zonation. During this workshop participants will have the opportunity to do a “productivity plunge” where they will get to experience the marsh (and mud!) in true full immersion style (aka-you will get to jump in the marsh mud!!). This program is geared towards ages 7+ but all are welcome.
Time: 8:30 am to 11:30 am Tuition: $25 per person
