Lummi Youth Riparian Education Program, an Honors project by Kirsten Moore. It is a series of educational activities to be performed at Marietta Slough in order to fulfill the educational component of the grant written by Lummi Natural Resources.
As defined by the grant, "Lummi Youth" includes students grades 3-12. The following lesson plans are aligned to the Washington State Learning Standards for grades 3, 4-5, and 6-8, with the intention of involving students grades 9-12 in leadership/mentor roles. The lesson plans are similar from grade level to grade level, primarily varying in topics and depth of discussion. My hope for this program is that it becomes sustainable so that students may monitor water quality and health of the riparian area from year to year, noting changes and delving into a deeper level of understanding of the role the riparian area holds in creating healthy habitat for salmon and thus drawing the connection between the health of the natural environment and that of their own culture.
