We will be hiking 5 km throughout the park to explore the various aquatic habitats and species. This will be a great family event where participants will learn about sampling and identifying aquatic invertebrates and what role they play in wetland ecosystems. You are bound to encounter other interesting wildlife including fish, mammals, birds, plants, and insects so make all the observations you can.
