Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge Field Trip

Great Swamp offers many great places throughout the refuge to view wildlife. The Wildlife Observation Center with 1 1/2 miles of board walk allows visitors to see a variety of habitats and many different species. Along these boardwalks, visitors may see numerous amounts of turtles, snakes, and frogs in early spring and summer. Many different birds can also be observed from any of the three permanent bird blinds along the boardwalks. (Cited: Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge)

On the trip, the students went to The Rapture Trust Center to understand how the birds are rescued and how they recover to be brought back to the wild. Later, the students went on the boardwalk trail to learn about the differences in ecological successions, wildlife and plant identification.
