School Programs & Educator Resources
We offer several programs to enrich students' understanding of the outdoor world. Reach out to email@example.com if you would like to include one of our programs in your curriculum!
We are also working to provide educators (from homeschool to public school!) with more resources to help them teach kids about nature! Check back soon on this page and in our events for affordable educator trainings, teaching resources, and more ways to get kids involved in outdoor learning!
Water Guardians After-School Club
Water Guardians is an after-school education program developed with a generous grant from the Pennsylvania DEP. Water Guardian club meetings provide students with a plethora of opportunities to gain experience through ecology-based activities! Our main goal is to have fun and spark a connection between students and their local environment.
Water guardians meet on the second Thursday of every month at the Carnegie Free Library in Connellsville, starting on September 14, 2023! Find the full schedule here!
Outdoor Lending Library
Upon receiving a grant from the Fayette County Community Foundation, MWA has created a library of outdoor gear and educational resources available to the public! This comprehensive and inclusive resource library is located in MWA’s office, and items will be available to be checked out during our office hours.
