Our day at Los Banos Creek Reservoir will involve presentations, discussions, activities, and experiences. We will focus on California’s water: including language, management policies, and laws associated with traditional and emerging approaches to water rights. Concepts of aquatic ecosystems, their value, importance, and understanding the complex relationships involved will be integrated throughout the day. We are planning a ranger-led barge ride opportunity. Participants will complete the requirements necessary to receive a grant-funded Aquatic WILD guide, which they will take home.
Aquatic WILD is an elementary through high school (and beyond) grade conservation education guide that offers both formal (classroom teachers) and non-formal educators (everyone else) meaningful information and an abundance of activities and related resources. Participants enjoying this day and completing the full experience will receive an Aquatic WILD guide.
