The Freshwater Society is a Minnesota-based nonprofit organization that for more than 40 years has worked to educate and inspire people to value, conserve and protect all freshwater resources.
In 2008, the Society went through a rigorous strategic planning process, led by the Guardianship Council, a blue-ribbon committee of conservationists and scientists. The council issued a report on the state of water in Minnesota: "Water Is Life: Protecting a Critical Resource For Future Generations."
The Society now focuses on two main issues:
The Freshwater Society convenes forums on threats facing water and partners with other groups to explore problems and offer solutions to them.
Resources for Educators:
Minnesota Weatherguide Environment Calendar
Calendars in the Classroom program
Without extensive background knowledge, a teacher can easily involve students in daily observations, instruct with the aide of visuals, and rely on information provided in the calendar to act as content meeting state science standards.
If you would like to receive a copy of Calendars in the Classroom or would like your school to receive no-cost training on Weatherguide classroom use, go to the Freshwater Society's website http://www.freshwater.org and search for "Weatherguide curriculum."
