It's Water-Wise Wednesday with Frannie the Fish {The Groundwater Foundation's Tools and Resources}

Are you a... 
  • Girl Scout
  • Future Farmer of America member
  • Family, Career and Community Leaders of America member
  • or just looking for a way to get involved locally with groundwater conservation and protection?
Look no further than The Groundwater Foundation's downloadable tools and resources.

Whether you are looking to get involved in teaching younger students about groundwater, learning about pharmaceuticals and personal care products in water, or holding a public awareness campaign, The Groundwater Foundation's tools and resources has you covered!

The tools and resources featured are ready-to-go and include the needed materials (i.e. PowerPoint presentations, fact sheets, hand-outs, etc.).

Frannie is going to use the Training About Protecting the Source Manual to teach the younger fish at her school how to protect their drinking water source. The hands-on activities in the manual use The Groundwater Foundation's Awesome Aquifer Kit to demonstrate potential sources of groundwater contamination, like improperly abandoned wells, over-applied fertilizer, leaking underground storage tanks, and improperly operated landfills.

Be sure to check out the rest of The Groundwater Foundation's website for other cool ideas of how you can get involved with water conservation and protection!

Share with The Groundwater Foundation how you will utilize these tools and resources in your community!
