Homeschool Stream Team

On Monday, homeschooler Cash, his little brother Colt, his mom, and TenneSEA staff Sara finally found a day without rain to venture out to Audubon Acres and make some observations of North Chickamauga Creek. As we were walking to the creek access, we quickly realized we were not the only ones in the woods. Read more

Fall 2018 Stream Teams

We have five Stream Teams already registered with us this fall, and we have even more groups around Chattanooga interested in signing up!

So far, we have Red Bank Elementary School Stream Team looking into quarantining a section of Mountain Creek off from the Forest Kindergartners at their school. They want to measure the water quality of the creek before and after to determine the impact of the Forest Kindergartners. The Red Bank High School Stream Team is working to determine places they can do small-scale stabilization projects to minimize erosion of Mountain Creek’s streambanks.

The middle and high school Stream Teams at Ivy Academy have been collecting baseline data of the North Chickamauga Creek that runs directly beside their school. They are currently making observations of their creek and brainstorming which project they want to take on to improve their watershed. Read more

World Water Day salute!

Water.  We all require it for life.  We all need CLEAN water and LOTS of it!  Caribbean SEA and TenneSEA work at the grassroots level to empower kids and their communities to get clean water.  The Flint, Michigan water disaster was a wake up call for many to realize that you cannot take your water for granted.  The changing precipitation patterns throughout the Caribbean have led to water scarcity or tremendous flooding events.  Atlanta, Georgia faces water shortages not just because of increases in water use, but also because of changing precipitation patterns.  We CANNOT take our water for granted.

Today, we salute three water champions : Valerie Constantin-Regis, Naomi Abraham Moon, and Randal Hale. Read more
