This July, we are introducing The Poop Map Project through a two-day watershed education workshop for teachers of grades 7-12 sponsored by the EPA Gulf of Mexico Program. Our focus will be – you guessed it – poop! Pathogenic bacteria that enter natural water bodies from rainwater runoff. Participants will: - Collect, analyze, enter, and interpret water samples collected from the Miss Peetsy B along Davis Bayou, from the new Marine Education Center to the Mississippi Sound; - Learn about the Mississippi Beach Monitoring Program and its policies on beach closure; - Discuss the Marine Debris Tracking App (sponsored by NOAA) and public outreach as stewardship; - Schedule an MEC Miss Peetsy B field cruise trip for 40 students. Students will receive lunch and there is an allowance for school bus transport; - Receive a stipend for completion and lunch both days.
