Located in the middle of the North Texas Municipal Water District’s East Fork Water Reuse Project, the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center is the result of a unique private-public partnership between The Rosewood Corporation and the Water District.
“The Aquatic Science Investigations program was one of the best experiences of my life … having access to those natural areas and professionals has helped me realize that I absolutely want to work in the environmental field.”
“What I enjoyed most about the Wetland Center was going out and actually being in nature. We weren’t looking at pictures, videos, or through a window at nature, but we were really in it.”
5th GRADE TEACHER, MESQUITE ISD
“The staff was phenomenal working with the youth. They learned so much about conservation and water usage … important teaching points in today’s world. The kids even helped in preparation of their meals over an outdoor cooker, which was a highlight! You know it’s been a great time when kids give a resounding ‘Can we go back next year?!'”
