The Storm Drain Rangers Program educates 3rd through 5th grade students in Alameda County about reducing storm water pollution. Through hands-on investigations, students learn about watersheds, neighborhood-creek-bay-ocean connections, urban runoff pollution and storm water pollution prevention. The Storm Drain Rangers Program consists of three classroom lessons in which students are taught environmental concepts that address California State Science and Social Science Standards.
Hands-on activities include creating a clay model of the Bay-Delta Estuary ecosystem, conducting a neighborhood storm drain pollution survey and clean-up, and creating colorful informational posters to teach others about storm drain pollution.
The Storm Drain Rangers Program is also a teacher-training program. Teachers learn alongside their students and receive both a curriculum guide and an equipment kit to teach the program to future students. Up to five Continuing Education Units are available through our partnership with California State University East Bay.
