Knowing the watershed

Fernie Secondary School students spent some time recently at the Fairy Creek Watershed

Jordan Hula (left) and Tyson Gedzuk take some time at the Fairy Creek Watershed to write about what they are learning about water in their community. Both Fernie Secondary School students recently took part in Columbia Basin Trust’s Know Your Watershed water stewardship initiative.

Fernie Secondary School students spent some time recently at the Fairy Creek Watershed to write about what they are learning about water in their community. By the end of the field trip and two classroom sessions, these students, and others from across the Columbia Basin, know where their water comes from, how it is used in their community and what happens to it afterwards.

 

The field trip is part of Columbia Basin Trust’s Know Your Watershed initiative. Students from across the Columbia Basin have been taking part in Know Your Watershed this fall. Learn more at www.cbt.org/water.
