MMWD has just wrapped up another successful school year! Thanks to all the schools that incorporated our programs into their curriculum. Over 7,000 students from 35 schools ranging from kindergarten to college participated in our 2015-16 water education programs.

Our programs are designed to support California education standards while fostering water conservation and environmental stewardship. They include:
  • "Water Walks" on the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed (grades 3-5)
  • Watershed ecology & restoration field trips (grades 3-5) 
  • Field science & restoration trips (grades 10-12) 
  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) aligned curriculum (grades 7-9)
  • Classroom presentations about the water cycle, our local water supply, and water conservation (grades 3-12)
  • Musical assemblies (grades K-6) 
  • Service learning opportunities including spring Turtle Observers (grades 5-college)
  • "Trout in the Classroom" program (grades K-12) 
  • Free illustrated poster of MMWD's watershed and water system for your classroom
If you would like to learn more about our programs, please visit our School Education page. Also, within the next couple months we’ll be posting our Water Wonders flier offering water education programs for the 2016-17 school year.

In the meantime, have a great summer!
