The contents of the middle and high school curriculum include information on ongoing activities such as journal writing and field trips, background activities on watersheds and the Lamprey, research projects on wildlife, pollution issues, cultural and natural history, and land-use issues. The curriculum standards covered are also listed in each section. The featured videotape focuses on interactions between the river and people and the history of the river. (YDS)
