Grade eight students from Stanley Humphries in Castlegar spent a day travelling around the city and area in order to learn first-hand where their water comes from, where it goes after it’s used and how important it is to look after water and keep watersheds healthy. The field trip was part of Know Your Watershed, a water stewardship program developed by Columbia Basin Trust and local environmental educators. To learn more, visit www.cbt.org/waterstewardship.
