Recommended for 4th - 6th Grade Students
Herbecides, pesticides, oil, gas, and soil erosion all impact the health of the watershed in which we live. Where does it all come from, and what alternatives, or best management practices, are available to ensure a lighter more sustainable interaction with our watershed ecosystems? During this presentation students make hypotheses, and conduct experiments to determine the effects of our everyday practices on land and water resources.
