BWISE in Action

Since September, 6th graders in Henrico County, Virginia have taken field trips to Maymont public park as part of the Bay Watershed in Science and Education (BWISE) program — a partnerships between the Alliance, Maymont, Henricopolis, Keep Henrico Beautiful, and Virginia Commonwealth University. Students have been exploring the concept of watershed through hands-on testing of the Maymont creeks and participating in history, art, and math stations. Enjoy this video that highlights all the great work done this fall!

Thanks again to all the partners including National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Maymont, Keep Henrico Beautiful, Henricopolis Soil & Water District, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Education and Virginia Public Media (VPM).
