WEP Ramping up for Another Season of School Programming

In Watershed Education Program by TI StaffLeave a Comment

The Watershed Education Program (WEP) is ramping up for another season of fall programming with area schools. The educational highlights include STREAM-based field trips (Science, Technology, Reading/Literacy, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics); focusing on the entire San Miguel River watershed, originating in the San Juan Mountains on down to the semi-desert life zone to the west. Our trips engage students in place-based learning and hope to foster active stewardship of our natural environment.

We are sorry to lose Laura Kudo as director of WEP. Having dedicated more than a decade to building up and leading Watershed Education Program offerings and special programs, Laura will be missed by the staff, teachers and students.

This fall, we will be joining 3rd-12th grade students and their teachers on thematic trips focusing on historic and current water use in the region, fire ecology, geology, geography, cultural history, water quality, fish ecology, renewable energy, and other topics.

We are currently looking for instructors to help with the Watershed Education Program’s offerings. If you are interested in joining us, please email Vicki.

Have a wonderful fall!
The WEP Team
