Teach for the Watershed


Teach for the Watershed (T4W) is an interactive watershed education program based on the new Michigan Science Curriculum standards. T4W provides tools to teachers and students that empower them to learn about, and take action to improve and protect, their watersheds and our Great Lakes. T4W is building the Next Generation of Great Lakes Advocates.

Teach for the Watershed (T4W): WMEAC is currently working on design and delivery of a new program to deliver Watershed Education to West Michigan. Teach for the Watershed (T4W) is designed with two audiences in mind: Teachers & Students. The four-part program is built around Michigan Science Curriculum Standards and will feature age-appropriate, hands-on educational tools that help students to excel in the sciences and protect their Great Lakes.

T4W's Four Components: 1. Water Usage and Runoff 2. Macroinvertebrates and Water Quality 3. Adopt-A-Stream 4. Invasive Species and Rain Gardens.
