A Study of the St. Lawrence River Ecological Habitat
Mesires, Maria
Science Scope, v33 n7 p22-27 Mar 2010
Save the River, a grassroots advocacy group established in 1978, lobbies for policies to preserve the upper St. Lawrence River and uses the community's help to keep an eye on the existing habitats. Recently, they procured the Fresh Sound Foundation grant to support the development of new K-12 ecology curricula by local area teachers to educate students about the St. Lawrence River habitat and the dangers it now faces. What has developed thus far by a small group of science teachers gives students a chance to examine the scientific issues involved in this local resource--an authentic, inquiry-based experience that is both enjoyable and interesting. (Contains 6 figures and 6 resources.)
