In 2021, we are embracing citizen science, or public participation in scientific research, with the goal of contributing meaningful data about ecosystems while also stimulating scientific curiosity and enthusiasm for the natural world.

DFW Environmental Affair Department will prepare a limited number of STEAM activity kits with supplies for lessons relating to local wildlife and water quality. Schools may register for one or more of the STEAM activities, but supplies are limited. Kits will generally be distributed on a first come, first serve basis, but priority will be given to classes (or groups) with at least 25 students to maximize engagement.
