Josh Hager, Ten Mile Pond Wildlife Management Biologist, is opening water-control structures on the area to allow flood waters to equalize within the TMP wetland units to prevent internal levee damage on the area.

The Earth as a Physical System

A MEEA Environmental Educator Certification Quiz

This quiz will randomly select 30 questions from a set of about 100 questions on matter, energy and earth science. The topic areas include atmosphere, geology, the hydrosphere, energy laws, energy resources, and units, the periodic table, cycles, chemical compounds, and carbon.

The MEEA Environmental Educator Certification program is a way for an educator to ensure that she or he has the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be an effective voice for the environment. The program is in the process of revision. You can find out more at http://www.meea.org/certification.html and help us try things out before our official launch in the spring of 2016.
