Mission Statement

The Youth Wetlands Education and Outreach Program is a statewide LSU AgCenter 4-H program sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources. The program is designed to heighten students’ awareness of Louisiana’s wetland loss through an organized educational program of outreach, empowerment and advocacy.

Description

Program materials - including structured lesson plans, materials used to teach lessons and step-by-step procedures to activities - are provided at no cost to participating educators. These lessons are implemented throughout the academic year with the program culminating during an intensive week dedicated to wetland learning known as Youth Wetlands Week (YWW). The program curriculum is endorsed by the Louisiana Science Teachers Association, and lessons are designed to follow Louisiana’s Grade Level Expectations (GLEs). Pre- and post-tests are completed by participating students, and the results reflect increased knowledge of main science concepts.
