Online Resources for Water Education

West Basin is offering resources to teachers and families looking to bridge the gap between in-person instruction and distance learning due to COVID-19 closures. 

Virtual Field Trips

Students will participate in exciting interactive webinars that focus on recycled water technology and recycled water use in the community. Virtual field trips are live-hosted by West Basin staff and are intended as an alternative to in-person field trip. Virtual field trips are available by request to school and youth groups throughout the summer time.
