Since 1997, Golden Sands RC&D has been partnering with Waupaca and Waushara 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, Waushara, and Wood Counties, but we're looking to expand our outreach to our entire Central Sands region.


The program teaches students about groundwater, soil types, and potential contaminates through an activity that simulates a soil profile. They learn how contaminates can penetrate soil layers, leach into the groundwater, and potentially end up in a community's drinking water supply.
