Since 1985, the Wolf River Conservancy has worked to protect and oppose environmental threats to more than 16,000 acres of the Wolf River corridor. Its eventual goal is to make a positive impact on the entire 90 mile-span of Wolf River, from the river’s origins in North Mississippi to its confluence with the mighty Mississippi River in none other than Memphis, Tennessee. The award-winning Project WET is a core component of the conservancy’s efforts, and its latest initiative—Project WET Water Workshop—is perfect for Memphis-area educators eager to get kids involved in local environmental issues.

Held in July of this year, the first Project WET Water Workshop of 2018 was a resounding success. Educators from across Memphis and beyond came together to try out both classroom-based and outdoor activities while educating themselves on the habitats that exist within the Wolf River watershed, local and global water issues, the Wolf River Greenway project and more. If you’re a teacher who missed the July workshop but are eager to take part, there’s good news: Another Project WET Water Workshop is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Pre-registration is required, and the workshop will include a copy of the Project WET Curriculum and Activity Guide 2.0 for every attendee along with a signed certificate of attendance.

If you’re not a Memphis-area educator but still want to get involved in local conservation efforts, the Wolf River Conservancy still wants to hear from you! Although the workshop is centered on educators, it’s open to anyone interested in attending, so why not pre-register and connect with environmentally minded people like yourself? The Wolf River will thank you, and so will the next generation!
