The youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow.  Teaching our children to be watershed stewards is a key goal of the CRVWA, and we strive to provide opportunities for local youth to learn about, appreciate, protect, and be active in our watershed.

Our staff is available to discuss water and watershed protection in both formal and informal settings.  Students are welcome to contact us for more information for watershed related assignments, and educators are welcome to contact us for information and resources to assist with lesson planning.  We are also available for classroom presentations, presentations at youth camps or youth organization meetings, and we actively participate in local events such as Farm to Fork, Ag Safety Day, and Food Farms.

The CRVWA has several children’s books that can be incorporated into youth presentations or borrowed by teachers for classroom use.  We also have activity sheets, coloring pages, and educational games to help educators to introduce water and watershed stewardship to students and children.  We welcome input from educators to co-cooperatively create lesson plans, activity sheets and presentations to address specific curricular outcomes and meet current curriculum standards.  We are able to design and deliver individualized presentations that include interactive demonstrations, activities, learning and fun!  Contact us for more information.
