    We are pleased to share a report on our Watershed Education Program led by WRWA Education Director, Shelli Costa. We are proud of the accomplishments and of the long term positive impact our Education programs have on local students. The Watershed Education Program is an interdisciplinary, environmental education program developed by WRWA in collaboration with teachers from the watershed schools.  The key to successful pollution prevention and preservation of our watershed resources is to provide the future stewards of the region with the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to become effective decision makers.  The Westport River Watershed Alliance firmly believes this can be accomplished through hands-on programs, and creative thinking skills emphasized in our Watershed Education Program.
