Water and Energy Conservation for L.A. Middle School Students and Teachers

Creating educational resources around conservation for youth.


Through a grant from the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP), The Bay Foundation (TBF) created this engaging and fun water and energy conservation project for Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) middle school students and teachers. These materials enhanced current lesson plans regarding water and energy conservation and climate change.

The Project Activity Book, educational videos, infographics, and other resources found here were created just for this project and were presented to hundreds of LAUSD middle school students from Panorama City to South Los Angeles.

The materials can be used freely by teachers, students, and parents, either as part of classroom instruction or by the students independently to supplement their studies.


We would like to thank the teachers and students of Girls Athletic Leadership School (GALS LA) in Panorama City, Los Angeles Academy of Arts & Enterprise (LAAAE) in Downtown LA, and Thomas Alva Edison Middle School in South Los Angeles for letting us test and revise the materials. We would like to especially thank LADWP for their ongoing investment in community-based water and energy conservation projects.
