Watershed STEM Grantees share stories about how they implement their projects, adapt to challenges, and work collaboratively towards a blue planet in the eeBLUE: Watershed Chronicles blog. This month, Dr. Jennifer Jones and Dr. Heather Skaza Acosta share how the Watershed Education for Resilience in Southwest Florida (WATERS) program at Florida Gulf Coast University has adapted to COVID-19 by creating a hybrid model reflecting online learning for students and teachers, as well as onsite training.

Aquaculture literacy within a community is generated by a familiarity with base-level information about aquaculture and, in turn, encourages consumers to take ownership of their aquaculture-related decisions confidently. Success begins at the level of community engagement and requires thoughtful implementation of best practices in environmental education. This is where NOAA’s eeBLUE partnership with the North American Association of Environmental Education (NAAEE) comes in, a 5-year partnership to increase environmental and science literacy among NOAA’s partners and external networks.
