Detailed Information:
The WebQuest is modeled after an actual expedition that 12 Pennsylvania high school students are taking in the summer of 2006. It will allow students to gain an appreciation of the complexity of environmental issues, as well as a sense of the real value of the Susquehanna River itself. Their task is to investigate the history, economy, ecology, and politics surrounding the longest river system on the East Coast. They will discover why the Susquehanna River is so important will make a determination: Can the Susquehanna be saved? At the end of the journey students will present their findings to a virtual gathering of political leaders, scientists, environmentalists, farmers, watermen, and community members.
