"Growing up with the wetlands in my backyard, I have come to realize that day by day they are diminishing. There are many processes that have sped up this loss; Most of these causes are caused by humans." Preist said. "Since the beginning of my freshmen year I have known that I was going to plan my senior project involving the wetlands."
