The Alice Ferguson Foundation shares the wonder and excitement of the farm, woodlands, wetlands and waterways of the Potomac River watershed with thousands of students, teachers and citizens every year.The Bridging the Watershed program, in partnership with the National Park Service, provides personally meaningful, educational experiences that connect high school students to their place in the natural and cultural world. Students observe problems in the watershed in which they live from a historical perspective, from the perspective of being a member of the human community, and from the perspective of an environmental scientist. Working in cooperative groups, and at times individually, students work on activities that include engaging questions and situations. They are guided through field and laboratory explorations that invite them to hypothesize about what will happen, to interact with natural phenomena, to observe, and to collect data about their observations. At the conclusion of each module, students are encouraged to engage in a service project during which they can apply what they have learned about the environment to their own community or in a national park.
