Students break into small groups for a one-mile walk in which they will use binoculars to explore the birds and other animals that make their home in the unique wetland habitat of Neary Lagoon. By taking data on their observations and comparing them to data throughout the year (and over many years) students discuss seasonal change, migration, and human impacts.
