WikiWatershed is an initiative of Stroud™ Water Research Center. The Stroud Center seeks to advance knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, education, and watershed restoration.
Stroud Water Research Center was one of three winners in the Partners in Innovation category and will receive $25,000 in AWS credit to continue its project.
The showcase highlights innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math education. Everyone is invited to view the short videos, discuss them with the presenters online, and vote for their favorites.
WikiWatershed has been named one of the top five civic tech websites for public services and open tools by The Global Grid.
During 2017, Stroud Water Research Center provided over 30 EnviroDIY sensor stations to watershed groups working in the Delaware River Basin to support monitoring, education, and outreach.
"Since water quality is a global issue, we thought we'd help in our own community to try to improve water quality along Gore Creek." — Katie Lunde, Colorado STEM teacher.
The Stroud Center's Model My Watershed web app has again been recommended by the CADRE network for STEM education researchers.
Model My Watershed made the list of recommended products to support modeling in science education on the CADRE website.
Nomination recognizes the app for enabling municipal decision-makers, among others, to learn about the impact of stormwater runoff in their watersheds.
The Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence recognizes the very best in innovation, collaboration, and public service in environmental stewardship.
