Wonderful, Waterful, Wetlands! At The Levy Preserve

During the week of July 21st – 25th, 2014, the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve, in collaboration with the Haynes Library, hosted an educational, fun-filled summer camp for the children of Governor’s Harbour. This year’s theme was “Wonderful, Waterful, Wetlands!” Campers experienced the wonders of Bahamian wetlands, both on site at The Preserve’s mangrove and freshwater habitats, and off site on a field trip to a coastal mangrove ecosystem. Daily activities included wetland insect collection, bird watching, art and crafts, and afternoon snorkeling.
