Environmental Education

The Saugus River Watershed Council and New England Discovery are working in partnership to provide a rich environmental education experience to youths throughout the Saugus River watershed.

Through innovative hands-on science, field trips and class room projects, students will learn about environmental stewardship, watershed concepts, and local wildlife.

Programs are provided free of charge for public schools and youth groups located within our 11 watershed communities: Saugus, Lynn, Lynnfield, Wakefield, Melrose, Malden, Revere, Everett, Peabody, Reading, and Stoneham.

All programs are designed to meet the Massachusetts Science and Technology Curriculum Frameworks. Registration is based on a first come, first serve basis and fills up quickly.

To register or find out more about scheduling a program, contact the Saugus River Watershed Council at srw@shore.net.

If you don't have time to schedule a program with the Saugus River Watershed Council, please feel free to download and use our classroom presentation:

This power point presentation is an excellent tool for engaging students in discussing climate change and how they can make a difference at the local level. Depending upon grade level and interest, the presentation can be used with or without the expanded section on stormwater management and low impact development techniques..
