As the new school year gets underway, Eco-Schools USA would like to introduce one of our new pathways, Watersheds, Oceans and Wetlands or WOW for short. Developed not only to support the 40% of our population that calls the coastline of the United States their home, but to address the growing need for conservation stewardship and a systems thinking approach to our current and future water problems. Our current Water Pathway will soon undergo a revision and solely focus on water conservation inside and outside the school walls.
The WOW audits are watermarked and indicate we are looking for feedback from our teachers during the 2017-2018 school year on the pathway’s ability to meet the school’s sustainability goals, while at the same time providing students the opportunity to drive change for our nation’s waters. Feedback can be sent to Eco-SchoolsUSA@nwf.org.
