Taking Our Educational Resources to The Next Level
In the next year, Water First will be meeting with community partners, educators and Elders to gather guidance and expand our program. Our focus is on maximizing First Nations youth involvement in the projects — from the planning stages all the way to implementing sustainable action. As well as developing more and different restoration opportunities that can better meet local environmental concerns.
Continually adapting our programs is a Water First strength. Our approach and the flexibility in our educational programming allows Water First to deliver meaningful hands-on water science education and restoration action that is of significance to youth and their communities.
Water First…and always! We believe healthy water creates healthy communities and engaging youth to be agents of change and future community water leaders, is worth every drop!
