EcoTrack 11: Wood County nature camp 'in a nutshell'

Presented by LS

WOOD COUNTY (WTOL) - A group of local kids are literally jumping into a lesson about nature.

This is day two of Nature in a Nutshell Day Camp at W.W. Knight Nature Preserve in Perrysburg.

Today these kids are getting their hands dirty as they learn about the wetlands and its importance in our environment.

A naturalist at the preserve says it's important they are learning at such a young age.

"Eventually they're going to become adults, and they're going to have to make decisions whether parks are important to a neighborhood or a community," says Renell Simrau.

Hear from the kids in the featured video included with this story.
