Help Save the Wetlands!

By Mrs.Peeks Class


Our biome is the wetlands.There are many kinds of wetlands including bogs,fens,marshes,swamps, and estuarys. An interesting fact about the wetlands is that there can be fresh or salt water but sometimes a mix called brackish water. It is very wet and humid. You will very rarely see trees and shrubs. Some plants are peat,pond weed,reed grass,marsh marigold,yellow flag,meadow rue,and the weeping willows. Animals that need food and water go to the wetlands. And some animals are beavers,bob turtles,water spider and much more.The average climate is rainy cold and sometimes humid. Bogs and fens are most common in the colder areas. The wetlands receives over 1,524 milometers (60 inches) of rain.
