Field experiences coupled with classroom activities are an integral part of Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences. During a MWEE students should participate in multiple outdoor field experiences to explore the driving question and strengthen their connection to the natural world. At least one experience should occur on the school grounds, which can help ensure the MWEE persists if there are issues leaving the school property.
