Dive into the details of how our water is cared for and managed, and the role that this finite resource plays in our food production systems! 

Join Inside Education on a tour of Southern Alberta to learn about the intersection of agriculture and water in our province! 

The program will give you the knowledge, experience, and tools you need to help students think critically about how Alberta can be a leader in food production while protecting our water resources. 

On the program you will:

  • Get behind the scenes tours of agricultural operations and research centers
  • Meet with experts from diverse perspectives including local producers, academics, Indigenous communities, environmental groups, government, and industry!
  • Network with colleagues from across Alberta
  • Be inspired with new ideas and resources to support student learning

All participating schools will receive an Aquatic Ecosystems Tool Kit to bring hands-on learning to life in the classroom!

Participants will leave with new lesson ideas and tools to implement school-based projects and connect with a ton of curriculum-enriching learning resources to share with their colleagues and students.  

Best suited for teachers grade 4-12 with curricular connections to science, social studies, and CTF/CTS but all Alberta teachers, career counselors, and administrators are welcome to apply!

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous people who lived among and traveled through the land in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s Métis people have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for the stewardship of our natural resources, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
