Public Education & Outreach


Here at CWEP, we believe that direct education services in addition to mass media efforts can have a huge impact on our member communities. Public education and outreach about stormwater is achieved through the distribution of educational materials to communities, or by facilitating and planning relevant activities about the impacts of stormwater discharging into local water bodies. The objective of this “hands on” outreach is to advise the public in person on steps they can take to help reduce pollutants in stormwater runoff.

CWEP provides useful “face-to-face” services for outreach efforts throughout the year in its partners jurisdictions including school, scout, camp, and library programming as well as tabling services at farmers markets, festivals, fairs and dog parks. In addition, CWEP partners with community members for trash clean ups, workshops, storm drain markings, environmental education projects and more!

You can learn more about each of CWEP’s direct education services and material offerings in our engaging program service menu here.

If you are interested in some of our general programs, or seeking assistance in an event within your local community, please go to our scheduling page. However, if you are looking for us to assist in facilitating a program for students at your school or library, please head over to our Teachers page!

CWEP has Stormwater education specialists who are available to present hands-on, stimulating, stormwater lessons using various models and resources to groups of all ages. The lesson can easily be tailored to fit your needs. Check out our availability and what we’re up to this year on our Calendar of events page!
