The Poudre River Ecology Partnership (PREP) provides place-based watershed education and citizen science opportunities to upper Cache la Poudre watershed residents. PREP brings together Fort Collins Utilities, Poudre School District, local residents and other public and private partners to engage in watershed science and stewardship.

Through the PREP program, second through fifth grade students in the communities of Livermore, Stove Prairie and Red Feather Lakes conduct field measurements twice a year to learn about water quality, water quantity and watershed health. The data collected by students is shared below to allow for additional educational opportunities within the participating schools and throughout the community.

Please contact PREP coordinator, Alicia Sprague, at YXNwcmFndWVAZmNnb3YuY29t or call 970-221-6241 for more information.
