Support from the Spokane Aquifer Joint Board provides KSPS with the resources to educate our community and our classrooms on ways to preserve the aquifer. The popular workshops, presented by Kristen Zimmer, teach young students about our most precious regional resource: the Spokane Valley - Rathdrum Prairie aquifer. Children are presented with hands-on, inquiry based lessons about how to keep the aquifer clean and sustainable.
