Details: We will meet at a parking area off Crawfordville Hwy, about 1 ½ miles south of Capital Circle - there is room for a bus to turn around. Rebecca Means (Remote Footprints/Coastal Plains Institute) will then guide a ¾ of a mile hike out to the wetland. Students (and adults) will be given the opportunity to check the bucket traps that encircle the wetland and dipnet a nearby wetland to see amphibian larvae close up.
In general this is about a 3-hour activity but timing and duration can be adjusted based on teacher needs.
A 5-minute video, created by FSU’s Learning Systems Institute for the CPALMS Perspectives program, can be viewed here.
