    Career Pathway/Field

    Environmental technician or scientist, biologist, farmer, tourism operator, teacher, science teacher

    Objective

    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, our way of life, and our economy since we are a tourist destination.

    Dumping,littering, fires, wild pigs, invasive species and polluting all affect the ocean. Planting native trees, making sediment filter socks with compost, organizing pig derbies, removing invasive species, and educating others are ways to prevent erosion and slow it down to hold the soil in place, and protect the coral reefs.  (provided by Mel Blas)

    Instructions

    Students will fill out liability forms, signed by their parents and if under 18 years old, must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

    Comments about the Project Location

    Parking is limited along Rt 6 in Piti, next to the Veteran's Cemetery.  Participants must walk a short distance (about 1/8 mile) up a gravel road to the reservoir. Activities include more walking up a hill with some steep areas.  Students with disabilities who have difficulty walking might find this event challenging.
