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.
In case you missed it — you can now watch the WikiWatershed Toolkit for Educators webinar on the Videos page.
This webinar introduces WikiWatershed and then focuses on the Model My Watershed web app, which demonstrates the effects of land use and best management practices on your local streams and watersheds.
How can clumps of slimy leaves spark stream exploration? Participants learned how at a workshop in September 2016.
Through a pilot program, 75 teachers in California, Iowa, Kansas, Pennsylvania, and Virginia are introducing their students to the Model My Watershed web app and related science curriculum.
