If you have school-aged children who would be interested in learning more about their local environment, and the unique relationships between soil, salmon, and water conservation, the Saving Water Partnership is offering FREE outdoor education programs to schools throughout the greater Seattle area!
The Saving Water Partnership (of which North City Water District is a member) has teamed up with Nature Vision to offer interactive, hands-on, inquiry-based educational presentations about water conservation—at no cost to K-12 schools in the greater Seattle area. The goal of these presentations is to help students discover a personal connection to local environmental issues.
These programs are offered on a first come, first served basis, and scheduling can fill up very quickly, so we recommend schools sign up as soon as possible by clicking here >
Each program supports Washington state K-12 Learning Standards and STEM Education, and can be taught remotely (either using pre-recorded videos followed by a live video call for Q&A, or as a live video), or in person outdoors—depending on the school’s policies and preferences.
Class examples include (each topic adjusted to match student age / grade level):
- The Water Cycle
- Soil Science / Healthy Soil Saves Water
- The Salmon Cycle
- Will There Be Enough Water?
- Water Conservation Town Hall
