The Watershed Congress is an annual event that brings student from WW and BEMP together for a day long event full of fun, science, and best of all reporting the years monitoring results on a public stage.  The Watershed Congress is a fabulous way for students to celebrate a year of monitoring and learning.  Students share their data and learn from other students what they discovered at the river.  They can also meet and mingle with other students that do the same thing they do.  At the event there are also  education stations provided on water quality monitoring, New Mexico snakes & lizards, Climate Change dynamics, raptors including  live birds, and Rancho de los Gondrinas culture. Download the registration form, agenda, and guidance for your students to make a presentation here.

Students present to their peers in poster or PowerPoint  presentations , rotate through different stations and learn a lot including about the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring program!
