Volume Title
The intent of this report is to summarize the program and commitment to implement the Shad in Schools program in the Christina Basin. This program is part of the broader education efforts to educate students and the public on the shad restoration efforts in the White Clay and Brandywine Creeks. The Shad in Schools program provides an experiential learning opportunity to students in the Christina Basin watersheds. It brings fish and their habitat into the classroom and serves to teach students about important environmental concepts related to water quality, ecosystems, biology, chemistry, and many others. In addition, this program incorporates history, art, public speaking, and other non-science disciplines.
