Ongoing Water Projects

Storm Drain Marking
Contrary to popular belief, storm drains do NOT lead to a sanitary sewer system. Instead, they move rainwater to our nearest streams, rivers, or ponds, carrying along any pollutants on the ground. Help educate local residents about storm water runoff and pollution by marking your neighborhood with decals that read “Only Rain Down the Storm Drain” and distributing informational doorhangers.  This is a great service project for all ages. To get started, return a completed proposal form to Vicki Culbreth by email or by fax at 770-641-3750.

Adopt-A-Stream
The City of Roswell offers training and materials on how to assess the water quality of your stream.  Programs include visual assessment, biological sampling, chemical monitoring, and bacteria monitoring. This is a great citizen science project to incorporate into classroom lessons in order to promote environmental awareness and scientific literacy. Contact Vicki Culbreth for more information by email or calling 770-641-3742.

Teacher Workshops
The City of Roswell coordinates environmental curriculum workshops for formal and non-formal educators of K-12 students. Curriculums include Project WET, Project Learning Tree, Project WILD, Monarchs in the Classroom, Our Shared Forests, Leopold Education Project, and others. Contact Vicki Culbreth for more information by email or calling 770-641-3742.
