Annual swamp planting educates new generation of students image Annual swamp planting educates new generation of students

Advanced placement biology students returned to Casey Swamp this spring to complete a planting project they started in the fall with the Baltimore Aquarium. Students planted marsh marigold, cardinal flower, blue iris and sweet flag in a wet frame pond in the fall and transplanted them to the swamp with the help of Baltimore Aquarium employees.

The aquatic plants help filter the water before it flows into the Susquehanna River and eventually to Baltimore Watershed before heading to the Atlantic Ocean. The class gained an understanding of watersheds and the importance of preserving wetlands.
