River Schools

Through hands-on learning in the classroom and in the field, students connect with and build an understanding of watersheds as complex ecosystems, learn about climate change and how it impacts a watershed, and develop and implement action plans to mitigate a climate-related problem they identify. Over a 3-year cycle, teachers participate in professional development, learn to facilitate programs on their own, and eventually serve as mentors for new teachers.
