- Helping educators
create environmentally integrated curriculum -
The US EPA awarded UC Davis funding to develop a community-based environmental
education project for upper elementary and middle school aged youth.
Return of the Salmon focuses on local natural
and cultural issues of the Putah Creek Watershed and is an initiative
of the Putah-Cache Bioregion
Project and the Public Service
a series of workshops and ongoing web based communication, environmental
educators from sites along Putah Creek, local school teachers, and university
undergraduates team together to develop place-based integrated learning
activities or units.
educational activities engage students in inquiry oriented learning
opportunities in the classroom and at field sites, fostering awareness
and involvement in our bioregion. The
units are designed to include practical applications to encourage extended
participation in community environmental projects.
