Calling all students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and volunteers to get the word out about MMWD’s FREE environmental education programs for the 2009-10 school year! Our goal is to instill an appreciation for and understanding of Marin’s unique natural environment in students of all ages. Join us and learn all about one of the most amazing substances on earth—water!
This year our programs are as fun-filled and informative as ever. They include musical assemblies, field trips to the beautiful Mt. Tamalpais watershed, service learning opportunities, and classroom presentations by MMWD’s water experts. Participants will learn about water supply, personal water use, simple water conservation practices, watersheds and watershed ecology, among other things. They will also have the opportunity to complete a useful evaluation of their family’s water use by taking home a “Do It Yourself Water Conservation Kit.” High school students will gain hands-on experience, participating in meaningful scientific research in the field of vegetation ecology. All programs are designed to support California education standards while fostering water conservation and environmental stewardship.
Hurry! Our programs are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. For complete details and scheduling information, see our Water Wonders flyer.
