Our Adopt-A-Stream curriculum creates grassroots efforts to test, advocate and protect water resources. Our program has taught hundreds of K-12 students the values and strategies to protect our waterways. Through this program we have educated the community on the importance of water quality and the integrity our watersheds.
In addition, 2015 was the tenth year of our Greater Rochester Earth Day CleanUP program and saw over 1,600 volunteers removing over 2,000 bags of trash and large debris from our environment.
Too many people, in both the city and the suburbs, do not see the connection between themselves and their environments. But their environments are all around them, where they live, go to school, and play. This idea engages students by making science relevant to their lives. Our outdoor field trips and in-school activities allows students opportunities for making the connection with their surrounds, science, and themselves.
Since 1971, Delta Environmental, formerly Delta Laboratories, has a rich history of environmental advocacy and education with hands-on programs for K-12 students on water resources and quality.
