A series of texts is available at three grade levels: K-3 (Level 1), 4-8 (Level 2), and high school (Level 3). They are intended to compliment a visit to Padilla Bay, but are also appropriate for students studying estuaries in other locations. All three use Padilla Bay as the example with a focus on eelgrass and mud flat habitats. Download the PDFs here:
