Wetlands Trail Education Kit

What are the Kits?

The Wetlands Trail Education Kit was designed for classes and community groups that would like to lead their own Watsonville Wetlands adventure. The Kit is great for all ages and requires NO prior preparation. Just grab and go to lead a successful Wetlands Trails Field Trip! The Wetlands Trail Education Kit is appropriate for K06 classes, after-school programs, and youth groups. Teachers will also feel confident leading their class on a wetland adventure knowing that they have enough supplies for the whole class.

The Wetland Litter Kit was created to beautify and make our community healthy. The Litter Kit is easy to use and it's great for all ages, classes, church and other community groups. It contains 35 litter grabbers, plenty of trash bags, microtrash counters, a stormdrain trash prevention poster, and cleanup safety rules.
