Educational Opportunities

We believe that saving open space goes hand-in-hand with environmental education about balanced ecosystems, watersheds and water quality, native/invasive species, and protection of wildlife. We plan to partner with Delaware Nature Society, Stroud Water Research Center, government agencies and nonprofits, as well as other groups such as the Scouts to support diverse ways for young people to have on-site experiences in "Wooddale Preserve" along the Red Clay Creek.  With grants, we hope to engage science teachers who will cultivate the knowledge and skills underpinning good stewardship. Our activities can span a range of ages and experiences culminating in sophisticated use of WikiWatershed tools and possibly tributary mapping. In addition we hope to collaborate with local birding experts who have been very supportive toward these efforts as well as other environmental organizations who embrace environmental education.
