Since 2005, Golden Sands RC&D has been partnering with County Land and Water Conservation Departments to bring groundwater education opportunities to 5th grade classrooms 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 teaches students about groundwater, soil types, aquifers and potential contaminates through a hands-on activity that simulates a soil profile. They learn how contaminates can penetrate soil layers, leach into the groundwater and potentially end up 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 using the form below.
