Irvine BMW Partners With Miocean To Support The Ocean Institute Watershed Program
March 1, 2011 – Irvine, Calif.- Irvine BMW is pleased to announce it continues to support and partner with Miocean in efforts to assist the Ocean Institute Watershed Program.
The Ocean Institute Watershed Program is dedicated to teaching children about the challenges of urban runoff pollution. Students participate in a 4-hour field trip to the Ocean Institute, where children take an in-depth exploration of watershed science, including informative staff lectures and hands-on exhibits.
The learning continues as the children return to their classrooms, where they begin planning and implementing their own local watershed research projects. After analyzing their collected data, they prepare presentations and deliver their findings at the annual Kids’ Conferences on Watersheds, held each January at the Institute.
“The program is a great opportunities for students to learn about the environment and to encourage them to help make a difference in their community,” said Steve Rudkin, Irvine BMW’s General Manager. “As strong supporters of Miocean, we are also dedicated to helping them make the Ocean Institute Watershed Program a success,” he said.
Since the program was piloted in 2003-04, more than 10,000 5th graders have participated in this unique educational experience, which has been continuously sponsored by the nonprofit Miocean Foundation since its inception. In all, Miocean has contributed an estimated $765,000 to the Watershed Education program.
