Middle and High School Service Learning
The Watershed Education Program provides opportunities for students in grades 7 and up to get involved with watershed conservation in many ways. The WEP Coordinator can be a resource for teachers, providing project ideas and connecting them with area partners for classroom presentations. For biology, ecology, and chemistry classes, there is an additional opportunity for students to work with researchers in the field. Students can satisfy course objectives and also have the satisfaction of knowing that their efforts result in real data that can be used by resource managers. If you are a teacher and want to learn how the Watershed Education Program can support your class projects, contact us.
Restoration projects are a great way for older students to satisfy community service requirements. Students can work with WEP to complete a senior project, Eagle Scout project, or other service project. Contact us to learn more about how you or your student can complete a project through the MFWWC.
