Watershed Field Trips

Program Length: Varies, 1-3 hours

Inspired by the Poudre River Report Card, experience how water scientists assess all aspects of the river during a watershed field trip. From the riparian corridor to the shape of the river, to the life and chemistry within the water, participants discover what makes a river healthy and why that is important.

Watershed field trips are dependent upon adequate weather and river conditions. Email VXRpbGl0aWVzRWR1Y2F0aW9uQGZjZ292LmNvbQ== to sign up.
