Meaningful watershed education experiences (MWEEs) can support implementation of education standards, as well as promote stewardship; however, educators often struggle to see and achieve this alignment. Our Making the Linking: Aligning MWEEs with NGSS and Maryland E-Lit through a Professional Learning Community and Targeted Resources project partners Maryland curriculum writers with environmental education providers to make this link between MWEEs and state environmental and national science education standards. We will create opportunities, resources, and guidance for these partners through a professional learning community. Community members will collaboratively develop, review and advise on standards-based MWEE for their individual school systems.
