Developed in collaboration with the Saint Vincent College Environmental Education Center, this picture book by Father Philip Kanfush, O.S.B., tells the story of the Saint Vincent Wetlands, a passive abandoned mine drainage purification system.
Rich with color photography, the book explains the history, science, flora and fauna of this wetlands system. Seen through the eyes of a child, a great gift for the eco-friendly science enthusiast!
