Bluegrass Greensource is excited to kick off a new school program this fall. In partnership with Kentucky American Water, Greensource is offering a water quality and conservation education program for fourth grade students in Bourbon, Clark, Owen, Scott, and Woodford Counties. Participating schools will spend two days working with Bluegrass Greensource educators in the classroom. Students will be able to learn about where their drinking water comes from here in Central Kentucky – through Kentucky American Water’s pumping and filtration stations. Students will also examine their watersheds and learn how they have a direct impact on the water they are drinking. After exploring issues like point source and non-point source pollution, groundwater, and the water cycle, students will participate in a project that allows them to take action in their communities to improve local water quality. All activities are aligned with Kentucky science standards and are hands-on learning opportunities for students.
If you are a teacher in one of these counties and are interested in participating, please contact Blair Hecker to schedule!
