Guest Speaker at Huntingtown Elementary School!!
I had the opportunity to talk to Huntingtown Elementary's 5th Graders today about what we do and why we do it. They showed more interest than I thought they would and were very interactive.
They are currently going through their Land Development and Land Use portion of the curriculum and I spoke about the importance of filtering your stormwater, ways to do so, and what is involved with maintaining stormwater management facilities.
The kids showed tons of interest in the construction process and seemed to understand the importance of sediment/erosion controls and stormwater management. Living in the Chesapeake Bay region, I think it is important that this is taught in schools.
The future is bright for the industry! It's important to be involved in the community, and I had a blast talking to the kids.
