Overview

The student will be able to: a) list two reasons why water conservation is necessary for the preservation of the Everglades, b) list two ways in which they can increase community involvement in water conservation, and c) produce a petition which lists ways to conserve water and get at least one hundred signatures on their petition.

Background

Everyone recognizes the importance of water for our existence. We use water in many ways; however, people aren't the only ones who depend on clean water. Many different kinds of plants and animals that live in the Everglades/South Florida depend on water, too! Sharing the resource means working together to protect our lakes, rivers, canals, and wetlands!
