Planning a field trip with their students is harder for educators then ever. Therefore, Northeast Iowa RC&D is developing a virtual tour of their Regional Urban Stormwater Demonstration Site. The virtual tour will be shared with educators throughout Northeast Iowa. Grants are also available for educators who make the virtual tour a part of their curriculum. Grants are available for the implementation of trees at the school, in the community, or at students homes. No match is required for these grants. This project engages young people to participate in a stormwater management movement, a topic of increasing concern for the region, and empowers them to directly impact their communities through the installation of urban stormwater practices. It will increase understanding of the issues and build a community of youth leadership.
