Youth Education

Our commitment to supporting the restoration of riparian areas includes providing educational opportunities to the next generation of stewards.  
 
We offer both an interactive classroom program (20 minutes - 1 hour) and experiential learning in the field, when possible, for K-college level students. Each presentation is individually designed to meet grade-specific district standards, covering topics such as:
 
  • healthy habitat,
  • biodiversity,
  • predator/prey relationships,
  • riparian/riverside areas,
  • invasive plants,
  • the tamarisk beetle,
  • the life cycle of the tamarisk beetle, and;
  • the important role that the students themselves play in the future of healthy rivers.  
Interested in having a RiversEdge West educator visit your class and/or get them outside to learn about invasive plants and healthy rivers?  Email REW's Outreach Coordinator, Cara Kukuraitis, at Ckukuraitis@RiversEdgeWest.org.  

RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
