Explorations in Water
Our Water Quality Workshop for Teachers is coming September 18th. The workshop is designed to help teachers understand how water quality and water conservation can be taught in a variety of ways and across disciplines.
Water resources are of major environmental, social and economic value. We rely of water for our health, ecosystem, farming, fishing and mining, plus it contributes to recreation and tourism. If water quality becomes degraded, this resource will lose its value.
The workshop will include water quality indicators, performing water tests, stormwater mapping, planning a school rain garden and information on Kentucky Green and Healthy Schools Water Inventory. It is open to all teachers in Bourbon, Clark, Owen, Scott, and Woodford counties.
Special thanks to Kentucky American Water for funding this workshop and supporting area teachers.
