New Environment Projects for Your Kids Korps Chapters
Kids Korps is collaborating with San Diego Coastkeepers to bring fun and interactive environment projects to students. San Diego Coast Keepers, an environmental nonprofit organization who sponsors monthly beach cleanups with Surfrider, has a goal is to educate students about water quality. Their initiative is called Project SWELL, a K-6th grade hands-on water quality and pollution prevention curriculum, designed to teach students about the importance of keeping our waterways free of pollutants.
This is a perfect educational opportunity that could be coupled with a beach cleanup, a river cleanup or a whole series of other volunteer projects offered on the Kids Korps Project Calendar.
If you are looking for a new and interesting project to do with your chapter this is a great opportunity. Kids Korps staff will be available starting in mid-March to train chapter leaders on the curriculum and talk about ways to make your next environmental project more educationally rich.
For those interested in attending the Project SWELL professional development workshop yourself, Coastkeepers are offering two workshops to teach people the curriculum so that they can lead these projects on their own. The workshops will be held March 4th and 5th from 4:30-6pm. For more information call Kids Korps at 858-500-8136.
