Attention Drain Commissioners and Water Resources Commissioners, Municipalities and School Districts! Let Cranbrook Institute of Science assist you with proven programming. Our Water on the Go! state-wide watershed education program has already impacted the awareness of over 60,000 students since 2007.

Programs are adaptable to a 4th to 12th grade audience and help prepare your community’s next generation of water stewards
We will advertise, schedule and deliver programs in your community, and report back the results. Let our Water on the Go! programs help you achieve success and public-recognition.
