Educators or Afterschool Clubs

Introducing the topic of stormwater into the classroom or in an afterschool club is an excellent way to educate younger generations about the importance of stormwater management. Stormwater management can be taught at any level, from basic lessons on the water cycle and pollution in elementary school to more advanced environmental science courses in high school.

Links to hands-on stormwater projects and activities designed specifically for education applications are available on this page.
