Call for Experts and Resources for Environmental Education Program

Hello Friends,

Genesee RiverWatch and its Aquatic Education Network is partnering with St. John Fisher College on a grant they recently received from the NOAA for the Our Lakes, Streams, and Rivers program. We are gathering a database of resources for teachers to use as they develop their Meaningful Watershed Education Experiences through the program. We are looking for:

  • People who are willing to speak with teachers or classes about their work related to watershed stewardship. If you are interested, send us your title, organization, topic(s) you could speak about, and your contact information.
  • Educational resources or educational fieldwork opportunities you may know about in the Genesee River and Lake Ontario watershed. 

Please let us know if you can assist with either (or both) of these. We appreciate your input and expertise. Thank you for your interest in providing education about the Genesee River Watershed to area students.

Genesee RiverWatch works to improve the water quality of the Genesee River and its tributaries to create environmental, recreational, and economic assets for its communities. We also connect people to the river, encouraging them to explore, experience and celebrate the river. The Aquatic Education Network, an initiative of Genesee RiverWatch, is an educational program to connect K-12 students with the river system to learn how rivers are impacted by human activities and communities.
