Educational Programming: Woodland Hills

By collaborating with fifth and sixth grade science teachers, we’re able to provide hundreds of students each year with high-quality hands-on lessons as part of a mini unit that culminates with a service-learning trip to the NMR Restoration area where students take an interpretive hike and assist with invasive plant removal.

The four-part mini unit addresses PA State Education Standards in the areas of Math, Science and Reading and consists of four lessons: watersheds and wetlands, water pollution, macroinvertebrates and stormwater management.

As a partner with WHSD since 2017, UpstreamPgh also collaborated on a continuing education workshop to guide district educators in utilizing the Stroud Water Research Center’s Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) curriculum in their lesson planning.
