Scout Week Kickoff with the Pontchartrain Conservancy
Ecosystems of the Pontchartrain Basin:
Discovering Diverse Landscapes in Southern Louisiana

The National WWII Museum is partnering with the Pontchartrain Conservancy for Scout Week 2021. Tune in for a live broadcast of Ecosystems of the Pontchartrain Basin where an educator will be leading this session.

During WWII troops traversed many diverse landscapes across the globe. To best prepare for surviving these different areas, they had to learn how to differentiate and properly identify what they were encountering. Discover the diverse landscapes of Southern Louisiana with us! What is the difference between a saline, brackish, and freshwater marsh? Would you find a raccoon in a brackish marsh? In this virtual lab, participants will create model ecosystems, compare and contrast two ecosystems, and discover the consequences of the loss of a species for an ecosystem.
