B.A.M. Winter 2018

Welcome to the second phase of the 2017-2018 Bahamas Awareness of Mangroves (B.A.M.) program! In collaboration with the FRIENDS of the Environment, we are working with two schools in The Bahamas – Forest Heights Academy and Patrick J. Bethel High School. Follow us as we bring mangrove creatures into the classroom as we learn about the mangrove food web with our B.A.M. year one participants. Then, venture into the mangroves with our second year B.A.M. students to explore the living and non-living factors that affect this diverse ecosystem. Students will collect mangrove leaves and then return to the classroom to investigate if their leaves contain a disease-causing fungus.
