Critter dipping with students at Allisary Marsh, Mount Stewart

Island Nature Trust has been a partner on this project since 2004 and we deliver 15-25 field trips a year to wetland ecosystems across the Island. Students spend a morning or afternoon immersed in learning about a local wetland habitat, practicing their critter dipping, identification of aquatic invertebrates, listening and using binoculars to look for wetland birds, and watching for signs of beaver, muskrat, frogs and other wildlife.
