Guam Educators Learn the Importance of Fresh Water on Island
Guam educators participated in a 3-day workshop that focused on protecting Guam’s
most valuable natural resource: the Northern Guam Lens Aquifer.
The workshop culminated in a field trip to the components of the aquifer on March 28. Made possible by a grant from Triple J Enterprises of Guam and the Ford Motor Company Conservation and Environmental Grants, the six-hour tour was led by faculty from the Water and Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific at the University of Guam (WERI).
