Water education is a top priority for Metropolitan. Our Education Unit is comprised of seasoned educators dedicated to inspiring a lifelong appreciation for natural resources and our shared responsibility to be mindful of our impact on the environment.
We introduce students to California’s water supply and distribution systems, water sources and water quality. They also explore the importance of water conservation and their role in preserving and protecting natural resources. All Metropolitan programs correlate to various California Content Standards, including Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Resources are available at no cost to teachers and students within our six county service area which includes parts of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and parts of Ventura.
“Water solutions are all around us, but we need to educate, inform and inspire young people to accept the challenge and make these solutions work. In essence, our real choice is whether to wait for a crisis to spur change or recognize the power of education and public engagement to build the capacity and leadership we need for tomorrow.”
