Loveland Living Planet Aquarium Visits 4th Grade

The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium recently visited the 4th grade students and taught an interactive lesson about preserving Utah’s valuable Wetlands. Students observed snakes, toads, and salamanders. They also learned how our wetlands help slow flooding, naturally clean our water, and create habitats for Utah’s natural plants and animals.
