Classroom presentations

Sacramento County Stormwater Quality Program works with the Sacramento Splash center to offer Splash in the Classroom presentations which is a fun and interactive way to teach students about stormwater pollution.  Students learn about pollutants that harm our waterways and how to play a role in protecting creeks and rivers.  For more information or to sign up for a presentation, please visit the Splash in the Class website or call (916) 364-2437.
