Project Title & Description
Paddlefish Reintroduction Education Initiative
The Paddlefish Project is an environmental education enrichment program that networks scientists with teachers and students to address local environmental issues. The project intent is to serve as a model for creating behavioral change that benefits the environment by providing elementary, secondary, and postsecondary students, their teachers and professors, volunteers, and youth and adult event attendees with content knowledge, scientific process skills, and real-world practice to make informed environmental decisions. Behavioral change will occur as participants acquire knowledge, apply their understandings while implementing investigations, and as they organize, differentiate, characterize, and evaluate data for educational purposes.
