Mecklenburg SWCD Classroom Presentations


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. 
         www.foodlandpeople.org/

Project Wet  (Water Education for Teachers)                    
         Promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water 
         resources.   www.projectwet.org

Project Learning Tree   (PLT)
           
PLT is not just about trees. It's about the environment: land, air, and water.   
          www.plt.org

Project Wild
            
Prepares young people for decisions affecting people, wildlife and their shared 
          home, earth.   www.projectwild.org

eco-TIME
            
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.

enviroScape Module
          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.

To schedule a presentation or for more information, please contact Anganette Byrd 
704-336-2455 or Anganette.Byrd@MecklenburgCountyNC.gov
