Caring for Our Watersheds

The Caring For Our Watersheds program asks students to submit a proposal that answers the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” Students must research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and come up with a realistic solution. Community judges select the top entries to compete at a final competition. Cash awards are given to participating schools and students. There is also implementation funding available.

Classroom Presentations

Teachers can request a classroom presentation to introduce the topic of watersheds, discuss local environmental concerns and explain the contest. Free watershed resources are also available.
