September 2, 2008


The Kansas University Center for Research has received a grant to promote environmental responsibility in seventh graders, the Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday.

The $19,999 environmental education grant will be used to teach 25 seventh-grade students about environmental stewardship, according to an EPA press release. Students will participate in a field study to learn about issues that affect an urban stream in the Brenner Heights Creek Watershed in Kansas City, Kan.

Those involved will perform watershed cleanup activities, discuss stewardship issues and prepare presentations about their work.
