SUISUN CITY — The last of 27 sixth-grade classes visited the Suisun Marsh Monday to try on the roles of soil scientist, hydrologist, botanist and poet.
Almost 900 children participated in the Suisun Marsh Watershed Program this year, according to a press release from Marianne Butler, educational program manager for the Solano Resource Conservation District.
The educational event includes studying the soil, water and plants encountered on a hike. It ended with penning a poem to commemorate their experience. The poems will be submitted by teachers to the River of Words, an international art and poetry contest.
