Learning from Home
Normally at this time of year, our environmental educators are busy providing meaningful outdoor experiences for students of all ages from all across the Anacostia River watershed. Spring is the busiest season for our Mussel Power, Rice Rangers, and Schools in Schools environmental education programs, and our Saturday Environmental Academy's spring session is typically in full swing!
So it's definitely a bummer that we can't be together during these challenging times, but there is still a lot that you can do from home to learn about our watershed and explore the outdoors! To help you learn and explore from home, we'll be putting together materials, resources, and other content here in one place.
We'll be continuing to add materials and resources to this page in the coming weeks. Please check back frequently.
Whether you are a teacher, caregiver, parent, grandparent, etc. these materials are for you! We’ll be updating this webpage over the coming weeks with content related to each of our school-based environmental education programs, as well as more general resources that aren’t tied to a specific program. This content is meant to be accessible to all – so even if you haven’t learned about mussels, wetlands, or American shad with us in school, you should still be able to understand, access, and benefit from what you find here.
To utilize the resources below, please know that any words in green font that have been underlined are links to other webpages, images, etc. You'll need to click on them to access those materials!
We’d love to hear if and how you use the resources we'll be sharing and what experiences they help generate, so feel free to report back about on social media using the hastag #AnacostiaRiverStrong. We can't wait to see what you're up to!
