Georgia’s Native Waters: Designed to be more than conservation education, it is an interdisciplinary set of environmental
education lessons and over 55 activities for kindergarten through twelfth grade students that inspire them to apply classroom
knowledge to real-world situations through the investigation of many of Georgia’s amazing aquatic ecosystems, while at the
same time connecting how community values can impact these areas.
Project WET facilitates and promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources through the
dissemination of classroom-ready teaching aids. The curriculum guide contains over 90 broad-based water resource activities
that were developed and field-tested by over 600 educators and resource managers working with 34,000 students nationwide.
