    EarthEcho International and Philippe Cousteau Jr. come to Cuyahoga Valley National Park

    Peninsula, Ohio Philippe Cousteau Jr., explorer, environmental advocate and grandson of the legendary Jacques Yves Cousteau, is coming to Cuyahoga Valley National Park on September 18th with his nonprofit organization, EarthEcho International.  The day is significant to all parties, as it is World Water Monitoring Day.

    EarthEcho is an environmental media and education organization founded in honor of Phillipe Cousteau Sr., by Philippe Cousteau Jr. and his sister Alexandra Cousteau.  EarthEcho works to equip and inspire youth to act now for a sustainable future, and more specifically to the event, build public awareness of protecting water resources around the world. Jim Trogdon, a local community environmentalist, and teacher at Coventry Middle School in Ohio has been bringing his students to the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center for over 20 years and more recently has been an education advisory panel member for EarthEcho helping to bridge the relationship. “EarthEcho does globally, what the Environmental Education Center does locally for the Cuyahoga River Watershed. We want our students, the future, to act now in helping with water quality and the environment. We are fortunate enough to have Cuyahoga Valley National Park its Environmental Education Center to use for exactly these purposes, and now our students can see how that plays a larger role in the world thanks to EarthEcho’s international database.”

    Trogdon’s students, along with students from Cleveland Municipal School District, and Akron School District, and Woodridge Local School District will work alongside their teachers, Education Center staff, National Park Service rangers, and Cousteau Jr. for World Water Monitoring Day 2017. The day will focus on water testing, invasive species removal, and tree planting to restore and protect the water quality of the Cuyahoga River Watershed. Students will be able to then record data into the EarthEcho Water Challenge database and watch as their efforts contribute to global awareness of our water resources
