Conservation Education – Water or Wheels (WOW)

The North Yakima Conservation District recognizes the importance of educating our youngest citizens.  We offer a variety of opportunities through a cooperative agreement with the Franklin Conservations District.

Water on Wheels (WOW) offers eleven natural resource focused lessons for kindergarten-8th grade classes.  WOW. lessons use hands-on demonstrations, educational games, art projects and science experiments to help students understand the importance of and relationships between water, soil, habitats, watersheds, energy and trees.

Wheat Week is a series of five lessons, delivered over the course of one week, which educate 4th-6th grade students about water, soil, watersheds, energy and wheat.  Students learn about water cycles around the globe, the importance of soil, watershed dynamics, energy production, and wheat systems.
