Madeleine DeManche, Skidmore Class of 2010, led a very successful family program on wetlands. It was the culmination of her independent study on the pocket wetland at Hudson Crossing Park. Young and old took a close look at floating duckweed, sought out dragonflies, and created miniature models of wetlands.

Materials used to prepare for her presentation along with lesson plans, handout materils and a plan to manage the Pocket Wetland at Hudson Crossing Park, are available on following pages.
