Watsonville Wetlands Watch has a mission to preserve, restore, and foster appreciation of the wetlands of the Pajaro Valley. Our goal for wetland camp is to provide a fun and safe camp experience for your child while learning about this important habitat and how to help keep wetlands healthy!
Each day we will start and end our day at the Fitz Wetlands Educational Resource Center (WERC) located at the top of PV High School. From there we will head out on a walking adventure into the wetlands surrounding the school, we will explore the wetlands, play games, connect to nature, and enjoy a picnic lunch. Afternoons will be back near the building participating in arts and crafts projects and other fun games and activities.
Week 1: June 26-20, 2023
Week 2: July 10-14, 2023
Week 3: July 24-28, 2023
