Teach for the Watershed School Signup


If you are a teacher with Grand Rapids Public Schools, please fill out the form below to schedule your Teach for the Watershed (T4W) programs.

  • Enviroscape Presentation: a 1-hour (or 1 class period) guest presentation with an Enviroscape Watershed Model. This will be done by a WMEAC staff member in your classroom or other available space at your school.
  • Enviroscape Model Rental: if you are interested in independently exploring the model you can select this option to rent an Enviroscape for up to 3 days per class. If you choose this option you will not receive a guest presentation.
  • Stream Study Field Trip: A 2-hour field trip to study the quality of a local stream in your watershed. For more information about the activities please visit our main T4W page.

If you would like to bring T4W to your school district please do not fill out this form and contact Kyle Hart at khart@wmeac.org for more information.
