Let us come to you! The Stormwater program delivers FREE K-8 educational programs in the classroom. These one-hour programs first engage students by giving them background information on what stormwater is, and how stormwater becomes polluted. We then allow students to explore the topic through age-appropriate hands-on activities demonstrating stormwater pollution. We wrap up the program by discussing how we can work together to protect our drinking and recreational waters.
