Davis Goes Green Field Trip

2021 -2022 
Field Trips for 5th and 8th GrAdes

Purpose

The Davis Goes Green program promotes understanding of water and waste management in Davis School District and the surrounding areas.  The Weber Basin Water Conservatory, Wasatch Integrated Waste Management District, South Davis Sewer District, and Davis School District have partnered together in an effort to show students first hand how their water is cleaned and their waste managed.   The program provides completely free field trips for our schools to visit these facilities and talk with their experts.  These field trips directly support our DESK standards and provide a relevant real world scenario to solidify our students understanding of the world around them.
