Watershed Watch (Watershed Community Science) increases understanding of water quality, river ecology and fisheries health through hands-on science in a real-world context.  Youth gather data on biological, chemical and physical indicators and make presentations to local data users including acequias, school boards, federal agencies and watershed groups.  Students become engaged in watershed studies that go beyond classroom learning that address critical water issues.

The core of our education work is to nurture the next generation of watershed superheroes through community-based green team development approaches that are rooted in experience and traditional knowledge, in partnership with people living in the diverse cultures of New Mexico.  We are now offering our Watershed Community Science curricula free for students and teachers at Learn.Riversource.net.
