Oscela County Invasive Plant Student Video Challenge

The following student videos were produced for the Invasive Plant Student Video Challenge, part of the Osceola County Hydrilla and Hygrophila Demonstration Project. After learning about the impacts invasive aquatic plants are having on freshwater habitats in Osceola County, students were challenged to write, act and film their own short stories about hydrilla, hygrophila and water hyacinth. Teachers and students used the following documents to develop the videos:


Many thanks to teachers Margaret McAndrews and Judy McDonald for working with their students on this project.
