Education and Outreach / Watershed Education

Watershed Education

Inspiring people to take action requires knowledge. Each year the Watershed Education programs reach thousands of students and adults with hands-on, exploratory experiences. School programs cover topics such as water chemistry, river ecology, watershed mapping, aquatic insect identification, snow science and economics of water. When students cannot travel to the river, we bring the river to them.

Adult and community outreach programs include River Ecology Interpretation for first year raft guides, Watershed Explorations, educational dialogues and forums, tours of local water facilities, and river float trips. Teacher professional development workshops provide engaging opportunities to earn continuing education credits required by Colorado's Department of Education. Every program is designed to engage participants with people and places in the watershed that they otherwise might not encounter or have access.
