School Presentations


School Presentations are offered as one aspect of our Education Outreach Programming. Demonstrations can be scheduled as classroom visits or presentations for your educational programs. Presentations last between 45 - 75 minutes and introduce students to water quality concerns we deal with in the Bayou Vermilion Watershed. We offer two focuses for our presentations.



Introduction to Trash and Litter in the Bayou

This presentation introduces students to the serious issues of aquatic litter we face in the Bayou Vermilion and our world's oceans and touches on solutions we can all be a part of

Introduction to Point Source/Non-Point Source Pollution & Best Management Practices

This presentation introduces students to our EnvironScape Portable Watershed Model and touches on the topics of the water cycle, water runoff, water quality, point & non-point source pollution, best management practices, and ecology of our watersheds.



In addition to our school presentations, BVD offers an environmental science field trip tour package of our facilities where students will tour our watershed exhibit and rain garden, conduct a macroinvertebrate sampling activity, and conduct a water quality chemical test analysis of the Bayou Vermilion. Group Boat Tours of the Bayou Vermilion are offered at an additional cost. To request a demonstration, please call 337.233.4077 x. 215 or email
