Source to Sea Watershed Education Program
Enrich curriculum with Friends of the LA River!
Students often have little connection to the River that flows through their neighborhoods. FoLAR invites 2nd through 12th grade teachers to incorporate the LA River into their curriculum.
FoLAR creates engaging learning experiences that also align with standards. The River’s rich history serves as a bridge to cross-curricular learning experiences and to links to standards in English, math, science and more.
Source to Sea educators bring the River Rover to schools to conduct lessons and activities utilizing the custom-built watershed table and the interpretive learning gallery. The experience culminates in an exciting hands-on River field trip.
Made possible by 3M
Friends of the Los Angeles River School Programs and the Source to Sea curriculum are made possible by the generous support of 3M.
3M is focused on supporting sustainability in all communities so that local approaches can overcome the global challenges that serve as barriers to improving everyday life.
