Virtual Field Trips

Discover Sweetwater Wetlands: A Virtual Field Trip

In the Discover Sweetwater Wetlands Virtual Field trip, we'll meet some of the wildlife at Sweetwater Wetlands and practice our scientific observation skills in this 60-minute virtual field trip! Using some video clips taken on site, we’ll “go live” to Sweetwater Wetlands to learn about how important water is in desert ecosystems. Through group collaboration, we’ll study wetland organisms and analyze and interpret their parts through a drawing exercise. This a great jumping off point for backyard science investigations, ecosystem studies, or learning about the water cycle.
