Project proposals:

1. Identify a photo that shows each type of wetland landscape. See Wetland Landscape key.

2. Select an image. Choose a species covered in this ecostudy unit or that is native to your community. Evaluate the habitat shown in the photo. Would it be a good home for the species? Explain. How might it be changed to improve it for the organism you are considering?

3. Select an image. Which species of plants and animals would you anticipate finding there?

Why I ask you to not link to these photos - Web sites are charged by the volume of pages and images sent. Page & image files are sent so you can view them in your browser on your computer. If you link here, you run up my bill and I have to pull down the page and images so the rest of the site can run. Since I am giving them away to you, there is no need for you to run up my website bill. Thanks.
