Watershed Monitoring

WET Watershed Evaluation Teams

 

Every fall Wallowa County high school students monitor the Wallowa, Imnaha and Grande Ronde River guided by partners such as the Nez Perce Tribe Fisheries, US Fish & Wildlife Services, and Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. This interaction gives students opportunities to meet natural resource professionals. The high school participants collect water quality, macroinvertebrate, riparian, and stream channel data. Then, to solidify their learning, they teach sixth graders how to collect this data. Both groups input and analyze the data on StreamWebs and present their findings in class.

The program seeks to increase:

  • Youth understanding of local watershed science
  • Youth understanding of using science in land management
  • Positive attitude toward stewardship, endangered species, and watershed restoration
