The Kissimmee River Restoration Project is the largest river restoration project in the world! CES has developed many educational resources including videos, plant and animal identification sheets, and lesson plans with student worksheets.
To accompany our Kissimee River educational videos, CES created lesson plans with student-guided worksheets to assist students in capturing the key points presented. Our lesson plans focus on the following topics:
The Kissimmee River: Food Web video uses the Kissimmee River as a model for students to understand the importance of Florida ‘s wetlands. The video is designed for upper elementary and secondary students to learn about the food web dynamics, processes, flora, fauna and the scientific research being conducted as part of the Kissimmee River Restoration Project.
Check out our new 12 minute video that provides an overview of the Kissimmee River’s rich history - the flooding, channelization, and ultimately, restoration. The video summarizes the research and engineering involved in completing the Kissimmee River Restoration project, the largest river restoration in the world.
This video tells the history of the Kissimmee River - from the flooding in the 40's and 50's, to the channelization in the 60's and finally to the restoration still underway today.
With the decades-long project to restore the historic Kissimmee River nearing completion, the South Florida Water Management District recently highlighted this success story for visiting U.S. Rep. Darren Soto.
