Save Our Wetlands
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     Trina and Ellie leaned on a fence. They watched a bird fly over the marshy area behind the local mall.
 
2     "It's so beautiful," said Ellie. "Can you hear the frogs?"
 
3     Trina looked sad. "Why do they have to fill it in?"
 
4     "They need more parking," said Ellie. "There's not enough room for all the cars since they expanded the mall."
 
5     "I don't know why they can't build a parking garage instead."
 
6     "Who knows?" said Ellie, putting her head in her hands.
 
7     "We need to do something," said Trina.
 
8     "What can we do?"
 
9     "I don't know," said Trina. "Wetlands are an important part of nature. Remember what we learned in school?"
 
10     "I remember studying them. But I can't remember why they were important."
 
11     As they were talking, a man and woman came up behind them. They had a folding table, some signs, and a cardboard box. They nodded a greeting to the girls. Then they walked over to the end of the fence. Trina and Ellie watched as the set up their table, placed a sign on the front of it, and put some flyers in piles on the table.
 
12     When they had finished, Trina turned to Ellie and said, "Let's go see what they are doing."
