Water Education for the young and young at heart

Many of my educational programs has a focus on water education.  This can be from the Water Cycle with 4th graders to general water issues to various organizational and civic clubs.  Overall, the education of and about water is the same but does change.  I expect you have heard that the water drop you see today was here when the dinosaurs were here, but the issues with drought and flood are ever changing.  Therefore education on water issues changes from day to day and group to group.

I was reading through the December 2017 edition of the Treatment Plant Operator (TPO) magazine and came across an article discussing Molding Water Ambassadors that I wanted to provide you the link for in this post. We at UGA Extension have different ways of providing water education from Agricultural and Environmental Awareness Days on the UGA Tifton Campus to 4-H2O days in different counties to activities on the other campuses and field/community activity days on research stations such as the J. Phil Campbell Research and Education Center in Watkinsville, GA.  On all of the different UGA campuses and within the Extension programs in all Georgia counties, there is water education that is molding water ambassadors as described in the article referenced.

Have a good day.
