Grade eight students in Sparwood have learned about stream health and how water flows through their community thanks to the Trust’s Know Your Watershed program.
They also built a Wild Water activities kit to donate to a local daycare centre. The kit includes a fishy facts game and pond study equipment, and will help kids learn about the variety of water-based animals that live in the Elk River Watershed.
“The daycare staff and kids were thrilled to receive the Wild Water supplies and excited about using the activities. Thank you grade eight students for your hard work!” said Jamie Chisolm, Treehouse Daycare Centre staff.
Working with environmental educators in the Basin, the Trust developed the Know Your Watershed water stewardship education program, which is aimed at grade eight students. This hands-on initiative helps students understand where their water comes from, how it is used and where it goes after it is used.
