the watershed education project provides trainings in project wet, adopt-a-watershed,
rapid bioases-ment, and native plant propagation. the number of trainings each year
depends on grant money awarded upon feedback from you!
depending mostly upon word-of-mouth, the wep strives to reach as many k-12 educators as possible. providing low-cost trainings
(and when we can, reimbursing substitute costs) enables us to successfully articulate
watershed-related curriculm throughout the school districts of the butte creek watershed.

the watershed becomes a living laboratory in which students in hands-on-activities, making science directly applicable and relevant to their lives.
each unit addresses grade-level appropriate, standards-based concepts and allows students to undertake field studies, restoration projects and community action activities.
once a teacher has received training in any aaw unit, he/she may teach any of the aaw units.
