Are you a K-12 school administrator passionate about supporting your teachers and students through relevant and real watershed education?

Learn how to support successful implementation of Meaningful Watershed Experiences (MWEEs) in your school district to help advance environmental literacy and stewardship while increasing standards-based student achievement. MWEEs are learner-centered experiences in which students investigate local environmental issues and complete informed action projects. In addition to becoming a Certified MWEE Ambassador, you will tour a suite of stormwater and agricultural best management practices.

BONUS! All attending school districts will receive environmental education instructional materials to take back to their teachers. One attending school district will WIN a $1,000 stipend for instructional materials, and a second district will receive $500!

Find more information about MWEEs at http://baybackpack.com/mwee/developing-your-mwee. Questions? Contact Steve Kerlin at skerlin@stroudcenter.org or call 610-268-2153, ext. 297.

Funding made possible through a generous B-WET grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA Grant #NA17NMF4570274).
