As the St. Louis River flows into Lake Superior, it creates a freshwater estuary. This dynamic area can provide several important aquatic habitats; open water, sediment on the bottom and wetlands along the shoreline. Students will observe the characteristics of wetlands and estuaries through the use of a model and identify their importance to the health of aquatic systems.
