    Water is Life: Quality Matters


    ROVWater Research with Robots 

    Students from Clearfield High School visited the Wetland Discovery Point to explore Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) at the Kaysville Ponds.

    Their teacher attended USU's GearUp Camp this past summer and shared her knowledge of ROVs with her advanced engineering students to monitor water quality.

    Natural Resources Field Days

    Thank you to all the volunteers and teachers who helped out this year to make 2019 a success!!

    This year, we had more than 800 fourth graders join us at Guenivah-Malibu campground up Logan Canyon to learn about water, plants, soils, and wildlife. Although the weather was not the best over the two week daily program, the students and teachers had a great time learning all about our local natural resources. To learn more about this great experience, click here.
