During the May Day holiday from May 1 to 5, the Guiyang bureau of ecology and environment organized a series of ecological science activities that were greatly enjoyed by students.

On the first day of the event, over 180 primary students were separated into groups that were led by volunteer guides from the Guiyang Ecological Science Museum. They explored Guiyang's ecological origins, such as its unique karst landforms.

In the following days, under the guidance of teachers, students ventured through Shili Beach Wetland Park in Guiyang to learn about wetland ecology, and observe birds, moss, and other flora and fauna. At the same time, students also participated in cleaning up litter along the shore.

"By participating in these activities, I learned about invasive species such as crayfish. They can disrupt the habitats of other fish and shrimp, upsetting the ecological balance. I also learned that Guiyang is a water-deficient city, so in the future, we must conserve water," shared Zhang Jianyou, a third-grade student from Affiliated Xingchen School of Guiyang No 1 Middle School.
