South Cross Bayou Education Program – Teacher Resources
The mission of the South Cross Bayou (SCB) education program is to educate students about Pinellas County water resources. The program emphasizes resource recovery, environmental stewardship and career opportunities. We accomplish this through facility tours for grades 6 and up, classroom presentations and STEM-related events for K-12 students, and programs with post-secondary institutions and other education-related agencies.
