Mill Creek Healthy People/Healthy River Education Program
15 Aug, 2013. 0 Comments. . Posted By: lncigc

Program Description:

Groundwork Cincinnati/Mill Creek sponsors an environmental education program that provides authentic learning experiences for students in twelve school districts in the Mill Creek watershed. Participating students acquire new skills, contribute to their communities, and learn to take pride in their accomplishments. Our approach to environmental education emphasizes both analytical and creative thinking and uses an action research model (data collection, problem solving and action taking). We encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and to help educate others about environmental issues. Through service learning activities we emphasize a conservation ethic and individual responsibility to protect and improve the local and global environment.
