Our Wetlands, Our World, published in 2004, provides information
and activities to help high school students learn about the importance of wetlands and
to become involved in the restoration of these valuable, unique environments.
The focus of the guide is on Upper Newport Bay in Orange County; however, much of the
information is applicable to other wetland sites.

Coastal Restoration at Upper Newport Bay
Hands-on ecological restoration activities are available in the Upper Newport
Bay through the Project Grow
program. Depending on the time of year, students can participate
in installing native plants, removing invasive weeds, mulching and watering
previously installed native plants, collecting seeds or transplanting seedlings
in our native plant nursery. These activities are the perfect complement to
Our Wetlands, Our World to enhance your students' learning
experience. For more information, please visit the program's
