Watershed Education

From touring project sites to helping plant a rain garden, we offer many opportunities for adults and young people to gain first-hand experience in water quality improvement. 

You can attend a workshop, take a class, participate in a public meeting or forum, or volunteer on a project or event. 

Our current offerings are listed below.  For even more great opportunities throughout Washington County check out the East Metro Water Resource Education Program
