About the Event
Our students know their street address, but how well do they know their watershed address? This lab will focus on building our personal knowledge of the watershed we live in using maps as well as policy planning documents, treaty rights, and climate action plans related to a broad range of integrated water systems including watershed management, water conservation, wastewater treatment, stormwater pollution prevention, green infrastructure engineering, and our shrinking snowpack due to the impacts of climate change. We will explore PBL instructional strategies and resources for systems thinking, guiding students in impact project design, impact data tracking, and stakeholder engagement. Watershed systems thinking supports the re-integration of indigenous knowledge where science, culture, belonging, and stewardship responsibility begin with the watershed landscape. We need to reconnect students to an intimate relationship with their watershed address.
This event is sponsored in part by Tacoma Public Utilities.
