The Wetland Nursery Program goes to New York

Published November 27, 2011

The National Aquarium’s Wetland Nursery Program brings hands-on marsh restoration to the schoolyard—and to the far reaches of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed! In October 2011, the Aquarium Conservation Team traveled to the headwaters of the Susquehanna River, the Chesapeake Bay’s largest freshwater source, to teach students in New York how their actions affect aquatic health all the way down in Baltimore. Students from Chenango Forks High School in Binghamton, NY, and Ridge Road Elementary School in Horseheads, NY, worked to set up ponds at school to grow freshwater wetland plants.  In the spring, the Aquarium will visit again to help students restore their local wetlands by planting the plants they’ve raised throughout the school year!
