Wetland Link International – 2014
Whether you are thinking of creating a new wetland centre, converting your activities to include a wetland focus, or you already run a fully-fledged centre, this handbook contains everything you need to know about creating, running and evaluating wetland centres and their activities. WLI worked with the Ramsar Convention and the ERF (Environmental Ecosystem Research Foundation, South Korea) who brought together wetland centre managers from across the world (many of whom are WLI members) at a week-long workshop hosted at Seoson Birdland, South Korea, in November 2013. The handbook is aimed at a range of audiences including government agencies, architects, NGOs and other conservation organizations, and will be available in several different languages.

At Cross Bar Ranch, seventh-grade students participate in a program called Watersheds Ambassadors, in which they learn about uplands and wetlands and their importance to Florida’s ecosystem. Before coming to the center, the students prepare with lessons in math, science, language arts and social studies that are connected to what they will learn when they arrive at the site.
