Educators

The following information and resources are available for educators (including homeschoolers) to assist with teaching students about the water cycle and the water renewal process. It is our goal at the South Platte Water Renewal Partners to help improve environmental literacy within our community and give our citizens the information necessary to be stewards of the South Platte River. Our Public Education and Outreach Team is focused on facilitating learning around the water renewal process.
