Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation Launches Partnership with South Carolina 4-H and 4-H Science on the Move

Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation Launches Partnership with South Carolina 4-H and 4-H Science on the Move

— filed under:

New partnership aims to develop robust water education program highlighting the Catawba-Wateree River Basin.

Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation is pleased to announce a collaborative partnership with South Carolina 4-H and 4-H Science on the Move.

The South Carolina 4-H is a youth development program of Clemson University Cooperative Extension Services providing opportunities for youth of all ages to learn a variety of subjects and important life skills to become healthy, productive, and contributing members in their communities. Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation is also working in conjunction with South Carolina 4-H’s initiative Science on the Move. This program provides valuable education resources designed to increase students’ interest in and exposure to STEM topics through hands-on activities and lessons. Both 4-H programs educate their youth with a “learn by doing” approach aligning with the goals of the Catawba Riverkeeper’s education initiative.

With our combined expertise and resources, this newly formed partnership will provide a robust water education program on hydrology and conservation, highlighting our dependence on the Catawba-Wateree River Basin. This partnership will support teachers and serve students across South Carolina communities in Lancaster County, Great Falls, and Fort Lawn.
