The Potomac Highlands Watershed School 

High School Environmental Forum


The Potomac Highlands Watershed School's Environmental Forum provides a setting for students and teachers to explore regionally important environmental issues in depth.  Students work both as a class and with other students across the internet to understand problems and to seek solutions that are broadly acceptable to their communities.  The current eForum is reached by clicking on the phone in the High School

You can see past eForums exactly as they played out by clicking in the links below.  Archived forums for the active eForum topic are hidden beginning one week before Part 2, the multi-school dialogue phase, begins.

  • "Oh Deer!" Environmental Forum. Students investigate the problem of deer overpopulation, an example of problems caused by ecosystems out of balance that require an effective societal response. 

  • Stream Cleaner Environmental Forum. Stream Cleaner Environmental Forum - Students investigate the causes of and solutions for non-point source pollution in the context of the regional effort to clean up the Chesapeake Bay.  Participating schools will have a chance to receive support for on-the-ground project at or near their schools.     LINKS REMOVED WHILE SCE FORUM 2014 IS ACTIVE.
