Working for Wetlands
Posted by Ekuphileni Primary, South Africa on 8 June 2017
Post related to Waterful Wetlands,

Grd 5 Water Explorers from Ekuphileni keenly got stuck in to convert their grey water diversion system into a mini- wetlands. First they learned about the importance of wetlands by building their own wetland filter. Through this experiment they were able to realise how wetlands SLOW DOWN, FILTER, STORE and act as erosion control as well as a habitat for a myriad of species.

They then learned about 8 water loving or wetland plants including Red hot Poker, Sedges, Carex grass, River star, Egyptian papyrus, Pink marsh Dissotis, Arum lillies, Dietes and others and made signs for each of them and then planted them below the grey water system. Already within a few weeks the plants have started to flourish.We look forward to seeing this mini wetland grow and attract other biodiversity back into our school while also helping to improve the quality of water leaving our grey water system.
