8. Promote Watershed Projects in Schools.
This Plan should be distributed to all school districts within the Watershed and the districts should be encouraged to incorporate Watershed improvement projects and an introduction to the Darby Creek Watershed into the existing curriculum. This proposal does not suggest developing a whole course on the Watershed, but merely looking at the existing curriculum to consider how a project to improve a neighborhood park, or to establish a local water quality monitoring program, could be incorporated. If only one teacher develops a program or replicates an existing program that is a success in the Watershed, the ripple effect could be substantial.
