"Sustainability in the Swamp"

The Center for Reservoir and Aquatic Systems Research (a partnership between Baylor University and the City of Waco) and the Lake Waco Wetlands were recently selected by the Louisiana Environmental Education Commission (LEEC) and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to receive funding for a Sustainability Initiative Project.’ ’Sustainability in the Swamp’ is focused on sustainable use of water resources.’ The primary goal of the project is to provide objective and scientifically sound information and first-hand experiences that will encourage teachers and students to utilize critical thinking and problem-solving skills to weigh the issues associated with sustainable water use.

A two-day ’Sustainability in the Swamp’ teacher workshop was held February 21-22 (Friday-Saturday) 2014 at the Lake Waco Wetlands, and included an Urban Water Cycle tour.’ Participants received a variety of resources to support incorporating water sustainability into their classes.’ For more information about the project, contact Melissa Mullins at Melissa_mullins@baylor.edu or (254) 710-2382.’ For more information about the Lake Waco Wetlands, contact Nora Schell at Noras@ci.waco.tx.us or (254) 848-9654.
