WATER IS LIFE
The Water Cycle as Exhibited at Sand Point Preserve
Life as we know it originated in water. On this walk, we’ll explore the Preserve’s grounds to discover the fascinating adaptations that animals and plants have made to acquire, store, and transpire/perspire water. We’ll discuss the critical role of trees in the water cycle, and the life-giving service that they provide. This walk is dedicated to the protection and conservation of water in our environment, with an emphasis on actions we can take to play a healthy role in the world water cycle.
Check back soon for the themes and topics to be covered in upcoming walks!
