Utah Water Watch is an excellent link for teachers to citizen science.
Students gain experience monitoring and make real-world connections between watersheds and water quality. See our calendar for upcoming training and events.
All of the techniques used in our Tier 1 program have similar components to Stream Side Science (SSS), which is a curriculum designed through USU Water Quality Extension specific to Utah. SSS lessons are aligned to national and state science standards.
Check out the Stream Side Science website for lesson plans and information about workshops.
