The Problem

Inform the community about the existence of juvenile Eel habitat in the Acushnet River. We also want to help monitor and keep the river healthy so our eels will survive.

Our Plan

We will research the eels and design activities and event presentations for public awareness. We will Partner with the Buzzards Bay Coalition to keep the waterways clean. Students presented at the Green Fair Umass Dartmouth to Jane and the community. They are also working with the local zoo to present there and with surrounding schools to help get the word out!.
