Dr. Kay Hensler Phelps
Assistant Professor of Teacher Education
Area of Expertise: Watershed curriculum design
Every June, Dr. Phelps partners with the Mountain Studies Institute, Water Information Program, and San Juan Mountains Association to offer a two-day exploration of our local watersheds. The “Forests to Faucets” professional development class is based on the My Water Comes from the San Juan Mountains book and curriculum guide, which includes place-based activities aligned with Colorado State Standards for science. Forests to Faucets is free to area teachers and features visits to rivers, reservoirs, and water treatment plants.
“The green oasis where my gardens thrive are in stark contrast to the piñon, juniper, prickly pear, and sage canyons that border my property. The difference? Five shares of MVI water - in drip lines and on timers, and never taken for granted!”
