The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has posted on its website a YouTube video that takes viewers out on the march with young “Eco-Explorers” at the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Aquatic Resources Education Center along the edge of the Delaware Bay east of Smyrna.

Developed as a hands-on field trip program that ties in with state science standards for fifth graders, Eco-Explorers gives Delaware students the opportunity to be scientists for a day, bringing their classroom learning to life by interacting with a real salt marsh.

Eco-Explorers journey along AREC’s boardwalk, visiting six eco-stations offering fun and educational activities including catching and identifying fish, netting and learning about macroinvertebrates (creatures with no internal skeletons), and performing water chemistry tests.

In addition to Eco-Explorers, the DNREC YouTube channel offers more than 50 fun, interesting, and educational videos.
