Watershed Wonders

Watershed Wonders serves as the day's closing activity, requiring students to draw upon their newly acquired knowledge. After completing the six previous stations, students stay in their group for a simulation of the land use planning process. Each student team assumes a land use scenario (agriculture, urban development, or recreation) and presents reasons why their land use recommendation should be accepted to a panel of County Commissioners.

"All streams are but a tributary to the ocean, which itself does not stream, and the shores are unchanged, but in longer periods than man can measure. Go where we will, we discover infinite changes in particulars only, not in generals." - Henry David Thoreau
