showcases natural resources and provides examples
of quality conservation practices, while also filtering
the water flowing into Wall Lake. This learning area
demonstrates the design, function, and beneficial
relationship to the environment these practices have.

individuals will reach a greater understanding and
appreciation for wildlife, the environment, and the
need for conservation of our natural resources for
