Appreciating our Wetlands

Similar to our aquaponic system, wetlands provide multiple benefits to an ecosystem.  Considered the “kidneys of the earth”, wetlands not only filter water of pollutants, but also provide habitats for animals, reduce flooding, and decrease soil erosion.  Feeling inspired, we then created our own wetlands making sure to include elements to represent producers (plants), consumers (animals), and decomposers (bacteria and fungi).
