Passport To Clean Water
Each year, organizations throughout the St. Louis Region, whose mission includes water quality, greenway recreation, or conservation facilitate educational, interactive activities, discussions, and explorations that explain different aspects of water with youth and their families. Our goal with this program is to provide all participants with crucial, take-home knowledge on how they can improve and enjoy the watershed in their own daily lives.
The event takes place once a year on various greenways in the St. Louis Region. This program is for children, ages 5 to 18 years, and their families. By participating in the program, youth can walk a local greenway, enjoy nature, and learn about natural resources. At the beginning of the event, each child receives a passport that will be stamped after a visit to each booth and they can redeem it at the final booth for a prize.
We are currently planning the 2015 Passport to Clean Water. Please join our mailing list (see signup to your right) and get updates as the 2015 program is announced.
Organizations that participated in educating youth through the 2014 Passport to Clean Water program included Missouri Stream Team, Friends of La Barque Creek, Wildlife Rescue Center, St. Louis County Parks, Metropolitan Sewer District, Endangered Wolf Center, Ozark Fly Fishers, Meramec State Park, World Bird Sanctuary, Great Rivers Greenway District, MDC’s Angler Education, Watershed Cairns and the Nature Conservancy.
