Wetlands to the Rescue! Summary Sheet

Grade Level: Grade 9 and up

This sheet summarizes all the ways that wetlands help lessen the impacts of climate change. It corresponds with Wetlands to the Rescue! PowerPoint. 

Your students will learn how wetlands provide water during droughts, store and slow water during floods, protect coastal regions from storms, provide a cooling effect, and actively fight climate change by absorbing and storing carbon.
