St. CHARLES, Mo.—– You can call them water filters, or flood buffers, but many unique plants and animals call wetlands home. On April 6, you’ll call them fun.
The annual Wetlands for Kids Day celebration is set for Saturday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area in St. Charles. Wetlands for Kids Day is hosted by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and Ducks Unlimited (DU). The event, supported by grants from Purina Pro Plan and Robert and Cynthia Reeg, is free for both kids and adults.
Wetlands for Kids Day is designed to help families have fun discovering nature while also learning about why these vital habitats are so important to Missouri.
