You can see the posters created by WCPSS students that won the Wetlands Are Wonderful poster contest this year in this week’s WRAL Greg Fishel weather reports.
Fishel will spotlight five of the winning posters throughout the week after his 5 p.m. weather forecast*. He is scheduled to highlight the work of:
Monday – Olivia Andrews in Laura Zimmerman’s class at Green Hope Elementary
Tuesday – Sonoma Knecht in Amanda Lefeld’s class at Pleasant Union Elementary Wednesday – Albert Choi in Brandy Smith’s art class at Farmington Woods Elementary
Thursday – Ryan Bodnarik in Stephanie Reid’s class at Wendell Elementary
Friday – Ashley Johnson in Rene Alford’s class at Alston Ridge Elementary
The students researched and illustrated a variety of ways we can protect wetlands by allowing natural wetlands to exist, restoring wetlands that have been altered by planting native vegetation and plugging ditches, constructing “new” wetlands to absorb and filter stormwater runoff and recharge groundwater, and joining a land conservancy that protects vital wetland ecosystems across NC.
