If you’re reading this, it has probably been a while since you last went on a school field trip. Do you remember any specific field trips from your elementary school years? Take a moment to reflect. What made those experiences so memorable?
This year and every year, the Coastal Watershed Council is committed to providing hundreds upon hundreds of local students with quality, educational and perhaps most importantly to the students, fun, memorable field trip experiences.
Watershed Rangers at the San Lorenzo River
As you can imagine, students in Watershed Rangers absolutely LOVE field trips to the San Lorenzo River to investigate grade-specific topics such as steelhead trout migration, native plant diversity and assessing watershed health. CWC practices the 5E Model of Instruction (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate) and you’d better believe that Watershed Rangers LOVE to explore. It’s February, the “month of love”, and this month you don’t need to take our word for it.
Here’s some of the love that students in a first grade Watershed Rangers class have for the San Lorenzo River and their Watershed Rangers experiences:
You and me both, Kai!
I loved painting along the River with you, too.
Our science experiment was so cool!
Visits to the San Lorenzo Wivr are the best.
Rosario, you’re a watershed hero!
Plants along the river are oh so important!
Polluters beware! There are a bunch of Watershed Rangers who know what it takes to keep our San Lorenzo River clean.
This work is made possible because of the generous funding and support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Thank you, NOAA, for the continued dedication to environmental education and strong, healthy communities.
