Environmental literacy—the concept on which ROW is based—depends on deep and intimate local knowledge.
Here in our California headquarters we don’t pretend to have that knowledge about every watershed on our continent—or our planet. Our Watershed Explorer Educator’s Guide is merely a foundation; to complete the structure we rely on our invaluable team of Regional Coordinators.
These unpaid volunteers work at the state or regional level to bring cultural and natural history alive for students and community members. Some administer state-level ROW contests in conjunction with our international contest. Others conduct teacher-training workshops, create state-specific teaching materials, or host traveling ROW exhibits.
To see whether your area has a ROW regional coordinator, please check our directory.
