University of Tennessee Watershed Education
Spring 2015, we initiated a collaborative project with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga (UTC) Outdoor Recreation department. The UTC Outdoor Leadership class learned about watersheds and then provided lessons for Red Bank Elementary and Skyuka Hall. They created a trail to the creek for Red Bank Elementary and the teachers were amazed, not having realized that the creek was so close to their school. This collaboration will continue in the coming year since one of the teachers used a grant we wrote to become a Teacherpreneur and incorporate outdoor education in to the overall plan at the school.
