Quest for Clean Shorelines
This project will have you and your action team doing your part to help remove garbage from a local body of water. By removing litter from sensitive aquatic habitats you are helping to restore the environment and creating healthier spaces for animals and plants to thrive. If your school signs up for this action project, you will join a large movement across Canada that empowers people to clean-up their community shorelines so that they can help protect wildlife and enjoy their local watershed!
Part A. Getting Ready explores the distribution of water and its role as a vital substance. Students are also introduced to local watershed issues and make preparations to undertake a shoreline/riparian zone clean-up.
Part B. Clean-Up/Audit- Students undertake the shoreline clean-up and complete an audit of the various pollutants they encounter. Sculptures are made from the materials collected to capture the students’ wishes for positive change.
Part C. Sharing the Learning- Students compile and display using graphs and charts, the results of their audits. They then focus on individual behaviors and actions that have positive and negative impacts on watersheds.
Part D. Extending the Learning offers students three related stewardship opportunities to contribute to positive change in their community.
