Youth and Water

One area of focus for the Environmental and Resource Management Department is to provide education and outreach to youth of Morris and Somerset Counties on environmental issues and solutions.  The programs reflect a hands-on approach to learning and are solution based; providing young County residents with the education and helping to provide solutions to address an issue with the training to utilize the tools. Being a part of a solution to the problem can empower the younger generation.  When possible the programs integrate a youth teaching youth component and this has been shown to reap rewards in knowledge.
