Hear from volunteers who have participated in the program...
"Personally the project was very satisfying because it gave me a chance to do field-based research with community involvement."

"The opportunity to immerse myself in a pond with nothing on my mind but invertebrates, plants, the sunset, and water was refreshing and renewing."

 "I'm gratified to know I have put effort into helping the wetlands and I'd do it again."
