Educators set to explore local nature sites

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes

In an effort to equip Texas teachers with skills and techniques to address water conservation and preservation in their classrooms, Central Texas organization Groundwater to the Gulf (G2G) will be hosting a number of hands-on field trip activities around the city for a group of 30 Central Texas educators from June 21-23. The activities, which range from learning to assemble a rain barrel to canoeing Barton Springs in order to collect macro invertebrates, are all centered around providing resources to the educators to help them develop water-based curricula. Groundwater to the Gulf has collaborated with 15 organizations to make this event happen, including the Colorado River Alliance, Austin Water, the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, the Lower Colorado River Authority, the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and others.
