  • Description

    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.
