Learning Urban Watersheds
Texas Stream Team
The Learning Urban Watersheds project was funded through a $15,412 U.S. EPA Environmental Education Grant that was awarded September 20, 2005. An additional $19,642 in collaborative funds was contributed through local and state partnerships. The project combined Texas Watch, Texas Nature Trackers, and Project WILD in a coordinated effort to increase environmental literacy among high school and middle school students through teacher training and interdisciplinary curriculum. The goal of the project was to design new programs that, by increasing environmental literacy capacities among teachers and students, support strategies to protect and improve water quality.
