Learn about Guam’s terrestrial (land), freshwater, and marine environment and their threats while experiencing it at the same time. You’ll go on a nature hike and participate in a soil erosion prevention activity in Pago watershed. You’ll also go on a kayak tour of Pago River and do water quality sampling while you’re there. On the beach off the river, you’ll collect data on microplastics and coastal clean-up. Through tours and service learning activities, you’ll have a better understanding of the connection between the land and the ocean.
