Get Youth Involved in Water Related Community Service
A riparian buffer tree planting event is a great example of a water related community service project
Help youth build a stronger connection with the water in their communities by guiding them through a community service project related to water. There are lots of different projects that you could do!
Consider some of the following:
- a stream side litter clean-up
- storm drain stenciling
- a tree planting event
- installing a dog waste station in a public area
- plant a rain garden or install a rain barrel
- complete water leak surveys around your home or a community site
It's also great to complete projects that help to communicate important messages to others. Here are two great examples:
1.) Create educational posters to display around the community or at a public event like a fair.
2.) Film short PSA's (public service announcements) for youth to share with others in school, at a club meeting, or on an organizational website.
