Project Title & Description
Watershed Ambassadors Program of Adams County
Strawberry Hill will design a Watershed Ambassadors Program geared toward underserved middle school students (grades 5 to 7) with an interest in the sciences and the environment. The students will learn about the Monocacy watershed and its connection to the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Students will participate in a series of hands on field trips to reinforce lessons, which include: stream water quality testing, and visit a bald eagle nesting site. Program participants will visit a sustainable organic farm to compare organic farming methods with use of pesticides and chemical applications.
