Palm Beach Maritime Academy Teacher, Steven Allen, slogging in the Everglades.  Each year he takes his seventh- and eighth-grade students on an experiential learning trek to experience first-hand the effects agricultural and residential run-off has on Florida's waters.  Students analyze water samples, measuring nitrates and pH levels as markers for pollutants.
