Thank you to all of the educators who visited the Santa Ana Watershed Association’s interpretive center on Saturday, August 27 for the Water Discovery Open House. Teachers from 6 school districts in the area visited and learned about the Water Discovery Program in the park.
What is the Water Discovery Program?
The Santa Ana Watershed Association, in a partnership with the Inland Empire Utilities Agency, offers a free education program focusing on water conservation, wetlands, and watershed issues. By incorporating hands-on techniques in an outdoor setting, Naturalists engage students to learn about water ecology and conservation. The program consists of stations placed throughout the park encouraging observation, imagination, and critical thinking. Programs are aligned with state science standards and are customized to meet the needs of each grade level.
