"Watershed Decisions" is a hands-on, inquiry based activity that helps older youth and adults learn about water quality issues surrounding small watersheds and the decision-making processes that go into improving those water quality issues. The "Role of Water in Shale Gas Drilling" is a pair of video presentations about water and the environmental impacts of shale gas drilling and production in the Mid-Atlantic region. These videos were designed for use by educators in both formal and informal educational settings. A new youth oriented fact sheet and activity pamphlet on the importance of safe drinking water is also shared.
