By blending hands-on classroom and field investigations modeled on professional research methodologies, students participate in data collection and analysis, community networking and partnerships, stewardship and service learning activities. WE promotes in-depth, multi-modal learning and understanding of water resources while encouraging students to examine their watershed holistically.
