WATERSHED EDUCATION PROGRAM

Storm Water Pollution Prevention - Keeping San Diego Bay Clean./watershed_icon.jpg

The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County (RCD) offers a free* Watershed Education Program for all 2nd, 5th, and 6th grade classes in the San Diego Bay Watershed. This is a fun, scientific, and interactive opportunity for students to learn about their environment and important water quality issues in San Diego County, and it meets California Science Standards for each grade level.

An RCD educator will come to your school to present a one-hour program using a three-dimensional watershed model. Students actively participate in the workshop by “polluting” the watershed model and making predictions about how those pollutants might affect the environment. Students then discuss how we can make small but important changes in our daily lives to help stop water pollution. Click here to download the program flyer.

Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance. Book early in the year to guarantee availability. Check availability or request a reservation form by calling 619-562-0096, alternatively you can click here to download the reservation form.

*Funding from the San Diego Unified Port District enables free presentations for all schools in the San Diego Bay Watershed. For schools outside of this area the fee is $150 per program, and $75 per program for additional classes at the same school on the same day.
