Swamp Life Nature Walk

 In Ocean Academy

By: Kathleen Caffee, Science Teacher

Earlier this week the high school students were fortunate to visit the upstream waters of the Toms River.  Students braved the cold and wind to take a look at life in the swamps at the Forest Resource Education Center in Jackson, NJ.  Naturalists Roger and Duffy shared their vast knowledge of the flora and fauna found in and around these special wetlands.  Students now know when the best time to eat wild persimmons is, how to tell the difference between a male and female holly tree, how to identify if a beaver was present, and much more!
