Our team can come to you! We provide free visits to schools within our Service Area on Mondays and Fridays in January, February, and May.
Offerings include hands-on, place-based lessons that are customized to your school site and schoolyard. Classroom visits can also help prepare students to submit entries to our Poster Contest or WaterWise Challenge.
