  • Description:
    The St. Tammany Parish Adopt a Pond Program is a dynamic program that incorporates outreach measures and wetland development to improve communities throughout the Parish. Local wetland habitat development in retention and detention ponds provide the outdoor education sites to cultivate young stewards and future resource managers. Additionally, this program empowers participating teachers to extend standardized curricula with information and data collected by students in a real world situation. The main goal of the project is to create awareness of the critical roles developed ponds play in water quality and water storage. The objectives are that students will participate in hands on learning developed to show the dynamic role local ponds play in watershed management, and how vegetative plantings can improve water quality in regional waterways that connect to the Gulf of Mexico. This packet is designed to help teachers become familiar with the St. Tammany Adopt-​A-​Pond program. Begin by reviewing its contents and keep on hand for future reference. Use this Teacher Packet, the PowerPoint Program Introduction and the Water Quality Test Videos to help your group improve data collection methods and techniques. Ask the Adopt-A-Pond Coordinators or experienced teachers for helpful hints or clarification on program implementation (Program Partners Contact List). The packet is conveniently divided into sections to quickly find expectations, Action Items for Teachers, and answers to questions you may have about the Adopt-​A-​Pond Program. Action Items Teachers should be aware of will be highlighted by bold lettering with the packet and noted in the Table of Contents.
