Discover Your Wetland Field Trips (Grade 5)

Discover Your Wetland half-day field trips take students into local wetlands, where their shoes get wet and their hands get dirty. Through a series of fun activities, games, and guided scientific exploration, students come away with an increased awareness of, and appreciation for, wetlands. They learn about plants, wildlife, water cycles, water quality, and the importance of protecting these important places. This program is sponsored by The Battle River Community Foundation and Alberta Environment and Parks.

Waste in our Watershed Tour (Grade 4)

*Now also offered in Wetaskiwin*

A tour of the liquid and solid waste streams in Camrose and Wetaskiwin! Co-hosted by the BRWA and the City, this full-day (9 a.m. – 2 p.m.) program is open to students in Camrose and Wetaskiwin.

The Camrose tour takes students to the wastewater treatment lagoons, Dried Meat Lake, the water treatment plant, a green space, the Centra Cam recycling depot, and the City of Camrose Landfill. Students learn about the solid waste that leaves their homes, as well as the water they consume and wastewater they produce. By the end of the day, students understand the waste cycles in Camrose, and are able to take action on water conservation and waste reduction.

This program is sponsored by The Battle River Community Foundation and Alberta Environment and Parks.

Yellow Fish Road

Yellow Fish Road is a nation-wide environmental education program designed and managed by Trout Unlimited Canada and hosted locally by the Battle River Watershed Alliance. The Yellow Fish Road program’s goal is to help Canadians understand that storm drains are the doorways to our rivers, lakes and streams. Preventing pollutants from entering our storm drains is critical to protecting and improving our watersheds, water quality, and aquatic habitat. BRWA will visit your classroom, then your students will hit the road to paint storm drains and leave “fish hangers” on doors in the community. Learn more on the Trout Unlimited website.
