Delta Laboratories has a rich history of environmental advocacy and education with hands-on programs for K-12 students on water resources and quality. Our Adopt-A-Stream curriculum creates grassroots efforts to test, advocate and protect water resources. Our program has taught hundreds of K-12 students the values and strategies to protect our waterways. Through this program we have educated the community on the importance of water quality and the integrity our watersheds. Too many students, both urban and suburban, do not see the connection between themselves and their environments. But their environments are all around them, where they live, go to school, and play. This can engage students at a profound level. Our outdoor field trips and in-school activities allows students opportunities for making the connection with their surrounds, science, and themselves.
