Upper Murrumbidgee Waterwatch is now available to provide field based education sessions with schools and youth groups. We have the personnel and equipment to provide hands-on, locally-based waterway education. We have nets, trays, buckets and water quality kits, pamphlets and storybooks designed to cover various freshwater topics.
Classes can range from simply fishing for water bugs with the junior kids, through to older grades conducting water quality and habitat assessments that can help to make linkages between our behaviours and river health. Classes are free, but limited, so book early to avoid missing out. Schools demonstrating alignment with broader curriculum requirements will be prioritised.
If a coordinator is not able to join the class in person, some extra, stand-alone education materials will soon be available on the Waterwatch website. There are also water quality and waterbug kits available to loan out.
