High School Water Quality Project

Monitoring Water Quality

Each Spring, SYRCL and Tahoe National Forest offer Creating River Stewards: Monitoring Water Quality of Public Lands for 6th through 12th grade students.

High School students are trained in water quality monitoring practices, collecting water quality data, analyzing and interpreting the data they collect, and learning river etiquette to become River Ambassadors.

This educational opportunity is funded by a National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) Forest Service Greening STEM Grant.

Interested in having your students participate in this opportunity? Contact Monique!
