NOAA Awards $85,000 Grant To Stroud Water Research Center For Watershed Education In Chesapeake Bay Watershed

 The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's NOAA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Education and Training Program (B-WET) has awarded an $85,000 grant to the Chester County-based Stroud Water Research Center to continue its watershed education program.

Stroud's Expanding Environmental Literacy and MWEE Implementation Capacity Across Pennsylvania project received the funding.

Through this project, Stroud and the Pennsylvania Department of Education will work together to build capacity for environmental literacy and Chesapeake Bay watershed stewardship in the Commonwealth by expanding the inclusion of Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences in Pennsylvania schools and in partner organizations. 

The project intends to reach 1,000 school administrators; staff and classroom teachers; pre-service teachers and nonformal educators from environmental education provider nonprofit organizations; parks; and related organizations.

In addition to the new grants, $2,165,731 will support 18 continuing projects in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, enabling nonprofit organizations and universities to partner with school districts to implement Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences that will reach more than 23,000 students.
