    A river of learning resources

    Each Waters to the Sea® program provides an in-depth exploration of a different waterway and watershed area. Regional images, music, historical characters, and events bring to life the story of how human activities past and present have depended upon and impacted water resources and terrestrial ecosystems. Each program includes dozens of videos, animation, dynamic maps,  and interactive simulations organized by topic that make learning fun and assist educators in meeting education standards. 

    Each Waters to the Sea®program draws on local history, geography, personalities, and cultural traditions. They use images, video footage, and music from the region. Most importantly, they bring information to life through creative interactivity built on stories drawn from human relationships with the region’s natural environments.

    Waters to the Sea® has received numerous awards, including the top honor for interactive media at Bristol, England's Wildscreen Festival--the world's largest and most prestigious environmental media festival.
