The Wetland Ambassadors Team works to bring awareness to the state’s wetlands and the threats they face. Team members spend the year developing coastal and environmental literacy and professional skills as they give presentations, lead activities, and exhibit at major events in their communities and the state.
Ambassadors attend four seasonal retreats where they grow through activities and hands-on experiences in wetland ecology and natural resources, as well as develop skills such as public speaking. The team also gets the chance to explore different career options by interacting with wetland-related professionals such as agents and biologists with Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
Membership in this group is available to 4-H members in grades 9 – 12 statewide. For more information, contact Catherine Fox at email@example.com.
Members of the Louisiana 4-H Science, Engineering and Technology Board and the Wetland Ambassadors Team learned about water testing.
