Envirothon Program

Aquatic Ecology Envirothon Program

The Mississippi Wildlife Federation’s Adopt-A-Stream program would like to offer workshops for Envirothon students to help increase knowledge regarding the following Envirothon Aquatic Ecology key points:

  • Methods of conserving water and reducing point and non-point source pollution.
  • Identify common aquatic organisms through the use of a key.
  • Learn to delineate the watershed boundary for a small water body.
  • Learn to describe the changes to the aquatic ecosystem based on alteration to the aquatic habitat.
  • Learn methods used to assess and manage aquatic environments. Use water quality to assess the general water quality of a specific body of water. Learn chemical testing of water to determine water quality.

The workshops are generally 2 hours of classroom time. If the group is interested and a stream or other body of water is available within a reasonable distance of the classroom the workshop can also be expanded approximately another 2 hours to include field study.

Registration Information
