Water Education

The Pomme de Terre River Association is currently providing water education demonstrations to schools, other associations, and residents within the watershed. We have many laboratory, field activities, and lectures that we would love to share with you, your classroom, or your association.


Classroom Resources

The River Association is devoted to providing educators reliable information that can be used in and out of the classroom. The table below is full of lesson plans, activities, and power point presentations on a variety of water related topics. If you don’t find the information you are looking for feel free to contact our project coordinator and we will help make a lesson plan/activity that is right for you!

Please contact the Project Coordinator with any questions.
