Caring for Our Watersheds


Caring for Our Watersheds

CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS is an education program that engages students in preserving and improving their local watersheds through student-led solutions. This is more than just a classroom assignment. The program teaches students real-life skills including researching, planning, budgeting, and written and verbal communication. Most importantly, the program teaches students that they CAN make a difference

Available in the following regions:

  • Canada: Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba
  • United States: California, Colorado, Ohio, Chesapeake Bay
  • Argentina

The CARING FOR OUR WATERSHEDS program asks students to submit a proposal that answers the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” Students must research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and draft a written proposal containing one realistic solution. Community judges select the top entries to compete at a final, verbal competition for cash prizes. This program is curriculum-based and an excellent way to bring project-based learning to the classroom. Plus, students and their schools can win cash prizes!
