Come spend the afternoon with the Santa Fe Botanical Garden at the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve exploring, photographing, and recording unique plants and aquatic animals. The unseen world of our New Mexico wetlands will be discovered through an expedition to find aquatic insects and creatures as well as identifying plants that define our unique Cienega wetland. We will identify and record as we add to the database of critters and plants in this special area. You will be provided with aquatic field supplies including lenses, I.D. books, nets, and microscopes.
