4-H Alabama Water Watch is excited to be involved in the Baldwin County Master Environmental Education (MEE) Program for the 2018-2019 school year. MEE is an outreach program that was created in 1995 by the Baldwin County Alabama Cooperative Extension Office. MEE provides training and support to volunteers who deliver environmental education lessons to schools and community groups.
Topics include backyard wildlife habitat, groundwater pollution, recycling, stormwater, and now Alabama Water Watch. AWW Staff created a hands-on lesson that is now part of the MEE offerings. Last month Mona Dominguez trained about 30 volunteers to teach the new 4-H AWW Lesson. Thanks to the City of Daphne, the volunteers will have access to kits with all of the materials they need to conduct the lesson.
Because of this great program, we expect hundreds of students to be exposed to the importance of water monitoring and the Alabama Water Watch Program!
