Watershed Education Summit


Thought I'd share this resource, as it might be of interest to educators - http://www.watershedsummit.org/

WES is an annual field studies event for local (El Dorado County, CA, USA) high school students.

During the four-day event, students, teachers, and resource professionals work together to complete the following tasks: stream cross-sections, stream gradient and stream water flow and velocity measurements, substrate pebble counting, macroinvertebrate sampling, shade measurement, Global Positioning Satellite data collection, water chemistry testing, riparian vegetation measurement, and large woody debris location.

Once I get the OpenROV built, I'm hoping to partner with these folks to explore some local watersheds.
