Watershed Outreach and Education

Public Outreach and Assistance Division

 


The Watershed Outreach and Education section helps engage the public in the Departmentís mission by developing and promoting local watershed groups that take responsibility for environmental protection in their community. The Watershed Coordinator offers assistance to citizens interested in voluntary approaches to watershed management and conservation.

The Watershed Outreach and Education section offers a variety of programs to facilitate and promote awareness, appreciation, knowledge and stewardship of water resources. One example is National Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) which facilitates and promotes awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources in Arkansas schools.

  • National Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is an international, interdisciplinary, water science and education program for formal and non-formal educators of K-12 students. The goal of the Project WET program is to facilitate and promote the awareness, appreciation, knowledge and stewardship of water resources through the development and dissemination of classroom ready teaching aids and the establishment of state and internationally sponsored Project WET programs.
