Description:

This case study about the environmental challenges facing a watershed in Florida can serve as a model for a watershed module. The study covers all aspects of the watershed, including its geography and hydrology, land use and population, plants and animals, as well as challenges to the quality of the watershed now appearing due to development and use of water from the watershed's streams and aquifers. Materials for students include a watershed quiz, a students' corner with puzzles, games, and links to online resources about watersheds, and tips on how to preserve watershed environments.
