Teacher Lounge

WRD loves to share our passion for water and water education with teachers and students of all ages! 

The WRD Education Program features interactive lessons that demonstrate the importance of groundwater, the basics of water sources and treatment, and the need for conservation. WRD Education staff are available for in-classroom demonstrations, exhibiting at environmental/education fairs, and as a resource for any water science related questions. If you would like any information regarding our Education Program please contact Monica Sijder at
