Sac River Basin - 4-H, FFA and Other Local Activities
FFAThe FFA chapter of Pleasant Hope High School is involved in Stream Team activities in the Little Sac River. The Stream Team project is a volunteer program facilitated by the Missouri Department of Conservation. It allows volunteers to collect data on area streams to assess stream health. These data include identification of stream macroinvertebrates (such as insect larvae) and measurement of chemicals streams.
Willard High School is also involved in Stream Team activities in the Sac River Basin.
Marion C. Early High School: This school, located in Morrisville, holds an annual water festival that offers watershed education and updates on local watershed health.
The 4-H youth development program works with youth 5 to 18years of age to offer:
Special-interest programs include conferences, distance learning programs, day camps and other educational activities such as stream cleanup outings and school-age care. 4-H has no geographic boundaries, and available environmental activities vary by county. While it has its beginnings in rural America, 4-H projects and activities today appeal to all young people.
