Stormwater Management Activities

The Stormwater Education staff had a busy April visiting ACC schools. 

On April 12th, the Stormwater Education Specialist participated in H.B. Stroud Elementary's Annual Day of Service. Four 3rd grade classes learned about stormwater runoff, water pollution, and things we can do in our local community to prevent pollutants from getting into our waterways.

On April 24-25,staff led an Enviroscape demonstration for Chase Street Elementary School third graders. Four classes rotated through different water activities provided by Stormwater Management and the ACCGov  Water Conservation Office.

On April 26th, the Stormwater Education Specialist, along with Education staff from the ACCGov Water Conservation Office, led a frog activity for five classes of J.J. Harris Elementary School students. The lesson included matching native frog species with their calls, discussing the frog life cycle, and meeting a live green tree frog.
