Our Upstream/Downstream education program strives to integrate provincial science curricula with the values that we at the Nashwaak Watershed Association believe are key to the health of the watershed. By introducing students to stewardship at a young age, we hope to grow and inspire future environmental stewards!
The Upstream/Downstream program is focused on the Grade 3 and Grade 4 New Brunswick science programs, in which we aim to bring classroom content to life through field trips to the watershed.
To book a field trip, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 261-4664. Topics include:
- Plant Growth and Changes– Students will learn about the physical requirements for plant growth by studying native watershed plants and exploring their habitat in the watershed!
- Exploring Soils– Students will learn about soil components, soil type, and the impact of soil type on an ecosystem by studying soil types located in different areas of the watershed.
- Habitats– Students will learn about habitats by studying the requirements of different animals living in the watershed.
- Rocks, Minerals and Erosion– Students will learn about rocks, minerals and erosion by studying the geological makeup of the watershed, and the effect of riverbank erosion on the watershed and surrounding ecosystems.
