Mecklenburg Soil and Water Conservation District personnel are available to visit schools at any time throughout the school year to discuss conservation topics related to soil (e.g., soil composition) and water (e.g., water usage).
Presentations include hands-on activities from the following:
Project Food, Land and People
Provides educational resources and promotes approaches to learning that help
educators and students to better understand the interrelationships among
agriculture, the environment, and the people of the world.
Project Wet (Water Education for Teachers)
Promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water
Project Learning Tree (PLT)
PLT is not just about trees. It's about the environment: land, air, and water.
Prepares young people for decisions affecting people, wildlife and their shared
home, earth. www.projectwild.org
Teaching with Industry to Manage the Environment. This curriculum is designed
to be implemented at the high school level and meets curriculum objectives for
Biology, Environmental Science, and Horticulture.
A table top module that illustrates point source and non-point water pollution.
Suggested for grades 2-6, but grades 7-12 would also enjoy it.
Mecklenburg SWCD can design a program specifically for your students, but we ask that the class size for these programs be kept to 25 or fewer students. We can schedule an all-day event to accommodate multiple classes.
