Students in Susan Lonergan’s fifth grade classrooms learned “There is Water All Around Us” through a program by the same name sponsored by the North/South River Watershed Association. Parents were invited to participate by being trained to run six water stations in the classroom.

Students rotated around the stations, which included information on water conservation, runoff, pollution, filtration, taste, and the topography of Rockland. Students then boarded buses and visited Sandy Bottom Pond to see where water comes from, and how it is processed for use in Rockland.
