Free resources for watershed educators:
Teachers from watershed towns are invited to contact Lynne about our new- and free– education program, Lake Auburn Kids Education; the LAKE program.
We’ll visit classrooms to conduct fun, effective lessons about water; provide consultation about delivering water resources education, and offer teacher mini-grants for water education activities or Project WET workshops, and a host of other free services.
Today’s students = tomorrow’s stewards!
