On Thursday, our educators and kids explored the wetlands found in our own backyard. After travelling to Cascade Springs and Bridal Veil Falls, our young naturalists were able to experience first hand what a wetland looks, smells, feels and sounds like (but no worries, we didn't do any tasting). As we looked at how well Cascade Springs naturally filters the water, a child exclaimed, "Wow! I can't believe how wetlands can keep the water so clean and clear!" The kids were then able to wade in the shallow waters at the edge of Bridal Veil Falls and feel the cold temperatures from natural springs. Not only did our young scientists explore the water, they were able to identify various Utah water wildlife like backswimmers, turkey vultures, butterflies, squirrels, and plant life.
We can't wait for you to join us this week with our next edition of Wildlife Adventures: Rock On!
