Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience

Biomes are made of biotic and abiotic components, but they are not just a collection of independent parts. Students will connect the dots between water quality, invasive species, sedimentary geology, and human activity to build a big picture of a freshwater marsh biome. This program has been designed to provide students with the kind of field experience described in the Chesapeake 2000 agreement signed by the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
