CVRD- Connected by Water

New!  The Comox Valley Regional District has developed materials to support students in learning about their connections to the watershed, learning what makes a watershed healthy and how to conserve water by using it efficiently at home. 

The resources are written as inquiry units (one primary k-3 and one intermediate 4-7), and are designed to support answering the driving question: What allows me to have safe water that I can drink?  They can be used in their entirety, or the activities within each unit can stand alone. They include a long list of additional links and resources connecting educators to many ideas and projects in the community, including options for field trips. 

CVRD Environmental Educator Tina Willard-Stepan is available to come in to speak to you staff about the resources and to help you implement them.  She is available by email at
