We host over 2,000 students a year — see what they like about Wings & Water!
We know that educators need effective and creative teaching options with plenty of bang for the buck. Wings & Water was developed with teachers and their classroom needs in mind, and provides the following benefits:
- Easy Way to Meet State Core-Curriculum Science Standards for Wetlands
- Free Tour and Supporting Materials
- Convenient Tour Location just off I-15 in Layton
In addition, the effectiveness of our program has been tested, and the results were published in the Winter 2009 edition of The Journal of Environmental Education. Read More
