Make a statement about the importance of protecting our wetlands. Create spectacle-art of the plants and animals that make up these rich, biodiverse ecosystems by crafting large-scale puppets and float-like structures. Join your neighbors in committees at different art-making stations to learn how working together in small but meaningful ways can lead to a big impact! End the day by being a part of a video public service announcement (PSA) to educate others on the importance of loving our wetlands.
