Watershed Guardians Scientific Monitoring
Watershed Guardians is a free program that provides an opportunity for students 6th through 12th grade to learn about steelhead trout and monitor the water quality in the watershed habitats they depend on to survive. Students will be visited in the classroom by a Museum educator providing a presentation covering the steelhead trout life cycle, human activities that threaten steelhead survival, and the basics of water quality testing.
After the classroom lesson students will go on a 1.5 hour field trip where they will conduct multiple water quality tests in the field. Materials will be provided for teachers to conduct follow up activities that involve entering and analyzing data, further inquiry, and stewardship.
