Our community is surrounded by water and it’s our job to take care of it. Our Watershed Education Program works to inspire, engage, and train a community of waterway stewards to take care of Charleston’s local waterways. The program delivers educational content about our harbor, rivers, tidal creeks, and marshes in schools, summer camps, and community groups through speaking engagements and hands-on activities.
The program targets adults and children of all ages. Each program is specifically tailored to engage and inspire its audience. Topics include but are not limited to:
- What is a Waterkeeper
- A Waterkeeper’s role in community
- Charleston Waterkeeper’s work and advocacy campaigns
- Tidal creek health and scientific research
- The Recreational Water Quality Monitoring Program
- Local waterway stewardship
Charleston Waterkeeper can also work with you to create a unique program for your group. Charleston’s local waterways have a fascinating history, culture, and environment that we enjoy sharing with our community.
To know Charleston’s local waterways is to love them. To love Charleston’s waterways is to want to see them fully protected for future generations.
