You are Recreating in a Watershed
We can all take steps to help protect our watershed and ensure we have safe drinking water. You are Recreating in a Watershed is a guide to best practices for behaviour when participating in recreational activities within the watershed.
Connecting Students With Their Watershed Manual is a workbook for community leaders to inspire volunteers and develop local watershed stewardship project plans. Each module guides the user to create a personal project. The manual includes self-evaluation tools, checklists, examples, teaching tools, background information, and lots of great illustrations and ideas.
For more information on engaging students on watershed protection education, see our curriculum-linked resources for educators.
