An Educator’s Guide to the Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE)

June 01, 2019

This 40 page guide provides educators with information and tools to plan, design, and implement meaningful watershed educational experiences.

The 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement includes an Environmental Literacy Goal that commits states in the region to prepare every student with the knowledge and skills necessary to responsibly protect and restore their local watershed. The cornerstone of this goal is providing teacher-supported meaningful watershed educational experiences—MWEEs— in elementary, middle, and high school.

This guide has been designed for users with varying levels of familiarity with the MWEE. However, most information contained in the guide is relevant to watershed education regardless of experience with the MWEE.
