The Meadowlands

Reading the meadowlands, for me, was just ok. I do, however, enjoy the Ideas portrayed in the book. As all of you probably know, wetlands are an important asset of a healthy environment. The problem is, we have a tendency to disturb, pollute, and even destroy them. For those of you who are not quite sure how wetlands keep the environment healthy, just think about a water filter. They work kind of like a natural water filter. What I mean is, the natural pollution brought about by natural storms and animals.

These are some of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet that house a wide variety of plants and animals. some that we have not discovered yet. this brings about the issue we should have with disturbing these environments. if we destroy a part of them, we could be destroying a plant or animal that could be useful. We could be destroying an environment that an undiscovered animal lives in and drive them into extinction. they also work as a great flood control system. 

it is in our best interest to save and preserve these lands because they are imperative to a lot of certain areas. We need to be aware of our actions and how we are affecting the world.

    You can just about double the length of the posting. Include more details (stuff you find interesting, or more interesting than the other stuff in the readings) so I can tell you did the reading. Include at least 5 additional things you look up on the web based on what you find interesting in the reading. Include an image or two. End with a few questions for discussion.
