Agua Pura

From Kathy Foltz:
CCS Students - here is an opportunity to put your interests in science, conservation, education and outreach to good use!
I am the Key Leader for a county-wide Science, Engineering and Technology committee through (UC based, cooperative extension service) Santa Barbara County 4-H. We are looking for one or two adult volunteer leaders to head up a youth 4-H Environmental Stewardship (water conservation) project, "Agua Pura." The volunteer leader(s) could be an undergraduate or graduate student or any community member. Responsibilities include meeting regularly with 4-H youth (typically about ages 9-16) who are enrolled in the project and coordinating community outreach events. The project itself teaches the participants about watershed and water quality issues, but focuses on having the youth then teach others in the community about water conservation.

SB County 4-H is looking for one or two adult volunteers to head up this program - ideally someone with a passion for science education and conservation as well as outreach. 4-H uses an Experiential Learning model for all of its educational activities.  Please contact Kathy Foltz (foltz@lifesci.ucsb.edu) if you are interested.

More information about 4-H and the Agua Pura project can be found here:

We periodically have opportunities for UCSB students to get involved on other science projects as well. Please contact me if interested.

Thanks!
