Geocache your school
Needed! A few good schools
No matter what level of school you are, there is a place for you at "Geocache your Watershed". Below are a couple of ways you can be involved but you can also come up with your own ideas and let us know so we can show them off to everyone!

High schools are the backbone of this project. Currently the goal is to have a high school in every province participate in the project, but high schools in every watershed can get involved! Take a look at our School Profiles to see what other schools are doing and visit Get Your School Involved to become a "Geocache Your Watershed" partner school.
Elementary Schools and Middle Schools
Geocaching is an excellent activity for elementary and middle schools! Although the project is structured for high schools, it could be used in conjunction with a middle school or elementary school. This project could be used as part of a water module to teach students at this level the importance of water - even in their backyard. The great thing about this project is that it can be as simple or involved as necessary. This is a wonderful opportunity to partner with the nearby high school to perhaps have the high school students take the younger children Geocaching or help with the products to go into the caches they are creating. The possibilities are endless and are only limited by your imagination.
