Plant 1000 trees along the Mannel Watershed in Merizo to reduce sedimation and erosion on our coral reefs.
Students will learn about watersheds and how Guam is composed of many watersheds. What we do on the land, no matter where you are on Guam, affects the ocean and our way of life. Dumping, littering, fires, wild pigs, invasive species and polluting all affect the ocean. Planting trees, making sediment filter socks with compost, planting native trees, organizing pig derbies, removing invasive species, and educating others are ways to prevent erosion and slow it down to protect the corals and hold the soil in place (provided by Mel Blas)
