IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to a lack of volunteers, this program was suspended in 2009.

Eastern Sierra Watershed Project

The goal of the Eastern Sierra Watershed Project is to familiarize students with their local streams by using hands-on science to determine the relative health of the ecosystem.  At fun and fast-paced water quality testing stations, students learn in-depth lessons about water acidity, temperature, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, hardness, turbidity, and nitrates.  They also learn about the role of macro-invertebrates, fish, stream flow, and riparian vegetation in stream ecosystems. This program allows the students to assess stream health in the their own back yard.
