Watershed Cruise

Overview

4th - 5th
Grades
2 hours
Duration
Onboard the R/V Sea Explorer, students form research teams to test the offshore nutrient levels, complete a bio assessment of the seafloor habitat, and examine the local plankton population. Students learn about the hydrologic cycle and what lives in a watershed. A hands-on demonstration with a model of a watershed shows the effect of human impact on our fragile environment. The program drives home why everyone needs to understand how we all affect our local watersheds.
