Cleaning up the wetlands


McKenzie Decker, Heaven Floehr and Bailey Decker (left to right) tear down a honeysuckle tree Wednesday morning in the wetlands behind Dempsey Middle School. The students were in the about 50-acre wetland as part of the Delaware City Schools’ summer ecology program and were working to clear the area of invasive plants like the honeysuckle. Students in the four-week program work from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. but also spend time in classrooms doing research and speaking to scientists.
