Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences: The “Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement” (signed 4.24.2015) is supported by VA DEQ, DC DOEE, NOAA, VA SWCD, and The National Park Service, to name a few agencies besides the VA DOE. Through a Project WET Workshop, school teams consisting of at least one administrator + two staff members, will receive MeWEE professional development and resources. Project WET is a nationally developed, supplementary water education program for educators, designed to teach students how to think, rather than what to think. Special emphasis is given to understanding the needs for water by all water users- no matter the geography of the district/region. (Workshop partially funded by VRUEC grant)
