Check out how kindergarten teacher, Nancy Jois from Capri Elementary, used her teacher grant to fund her project, the Capri Rain Garden🌧

This project taught kindergarten classes about the water cycle, erosion and landscaping in our dry Southern California climate. With this grant, the students created models of individual water cycles, used their models to demonstrate the concept of erosion, and added plants to the school campus rain garden to help prevent erosion/ water runoff into a storm drain.

Great work to Nancy & her kindergarten students!

This is what a clogged pipe looks like. Prevent this from ever happening to you by making sure you never dump FOG down the drain.

What's FOG, you ask? Fats, Oils, and Grease. These substances are harmful to your pipes and can potentially cause a sewage back-up into your home. Instead, be sure to toss FOG in the garbage.

Today from 10am-2pm, turn in prescription drugs safely and anonymously for The DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

Even though it starts with a "P", Prescriptions are not one of the 3 P's that belong in your toilet. Prescription drugs aren't always broken down in the treatment system, and the compounds can end up in the ocean if flushed. Exposure to even low levels of drugs has negative effects on fish and other aquatic species, and also may negatively affect human health.

Teachers! 🍎 Are you interested in receiving a grant to help you educate your students about water resource management and ocean water pollution prevention?
