Fall School Programs

Compost Stew - New this school year! Check out a hands on learning kit from EarthWays Center for your early learner classroom. The kit this season will focus on compost, with a copy of Compost Stew by Mary McKenna Siddals and manipulatives to go with the book. This is a great interactive kit to introduce young learners to composting and how to care for the planet.

You can contact Katherine Golden at Katherine.golden@mobot.org to borrow a kit. MSD Clean Water Programs are presented in partnership with MSD’s Project Clear. In addition, these programs are FREE if you are located within MSD’s service territory.

EnviroScape Presentation - Learn how everyone plays a role in keeping water clean. See how pollution enters our streams and rivers and what you can do in your own neighborhood to help using the popular EnviroScape® Watershed model. Teachers can borrow the model for demonstrations or EarthWays can provide a virtual demonstration.


Storm Drain Marking - We provide all the tools and equipment your group needs to help put knowledge into action. MSD's Storm Drain Marker Program provides a visible reminder of the consequences of improper waste disposal, and helps communicate to the community that storm drains can carry pollution to area rivers and streams. Great for school projects, scouts, and community groups! Opportunities to participate in the program begin in March 2022. Contact EarthWays Center at MSDCleanwater@mobot.org to schedule your clean water program today!
