Local high schools named wetland centres of excellence

Ducks Unlimited Canada has designated two local schools as "wetland centres of excellence".

Under the program, students at BHS and ESN will promote the protection of local wetlands by taking field trips to Daly Point Nature Reserve to study its plants and animals.

Ducks Unlimited is chipping in $20,000 over five years to help with equipment and expenses.

The students will also be trained to host field trips and teach local Grade 4 students about local wetlands.
