Groundwater Education

Since 2005, Golden Sands RC&D has been partnering with County Land and Water
servation Departments to bring Goundwater Infiltrates training opportunities into 5th grade classro
oms in Central Wisconsin.  We are currently offering this program in Waupaca and Waushara Counties, but we're looking to expand our outreach to our entire Central Sands region.
The program is designed to raise awareness about groundwater, soil types, the aquafer and potential contaminates.  Students are guided through a hands-on activity that simulates a soil profile.  The demonstration shows how surface level contaminates can penetrate multiple layers of soil, leach into the groundwater and potentially compromise a community's drinking water supply.
If you're interested in seeing this program offered in your County or to schedule a lesson in Waushara or Waupaca County, contact us.
