Environmental Education Curriculum Guide
The CRVI Environmental Education Action Team, in partnership with Friends of Southwest Virginia and with funding by the Virginia Environmental Endowment, has produced a curriculum guide for educators across the Clinch River Valley and beyond. Teach The Clinch takes both newly-developed and "tried and true" science curricula and adapts them to the Clinch River Valley, using the watershed's unique organisms and ecosystems to introduce broader scientific concepts to students. Teach The Clinch was composed by Carol Doss and Christopher Anama-Green with guidance from action team members and provides curricula that can be used both in K-12 educators' classrooms and at the new Clinch River Ecological Center in St. Paul. The guide is free and can be viewed and downloaded at http://teachtheclinch.com
