SC Adopt-a-Stream Freshwater High School Curriculum & Educator Training Course

*Update* This training course is currently full! Stay tuned for future training opportunities. For more information, please contact Haley Bird at


Join Clemson’s Center for Watershed Excellence and partners this summer for the SC Adopt-a-Stream Freshwater High School Curriculum and Educator Training course! The SC Adopt-a-Stream Freshwater High School Curriculum is a new offering based on powerful research showing that experiential science learning enables students to better connect theories and knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world applications. 
Through a combination of online and in-person training, the Educator’s Course will offer educators a foundation of watershed science, monitoring, and stewardship activities with resources and lessons to share their knowledge with students. Everyone will have the option to become freshwater and macroinvertebrate certified, but this is more than a certification course! Attendees will work through curriculum activities together and have an ArcGIS lesson to bring back to their students! 


In-person training will take place on June 27th and June 28th at Renewable Water Resource’s Water Discovery Lab in Greenville, SC. The registration deadline is June 6th and access to online modules will open on June 8th.


This course and registration are FREE and open to all educators (pre-service teachers, in-service teachers, and non-formal environmental educators) who wish to learn more about the
SC Adopt-a-Stream Freshwater High School Curriculum and its youth citizen science framework for water quality and ecosystem monitoring. Please click the “Registration” button to sign up!
