We are a network of teachers and students from high schools in Northeast Wisconsin collaborating with university scientists on a long-term watershed monitoring program. Our students and teachers monitor seven environmentally impaired streams in the Fox River watershed for water quality and ecological health.
Our data provides a measurement of pollution that flows to the Fox River and Bay of Green Bay. This runoff pollution is the type of pollution that contributes to the much publicized “dead zone” in the bay of Green Bay. So beyond the innovative educational benefits our program provides for our students, we also provide the community with crucial data about our water quality that can be used to assess long-term trends and evaluate restoration efforts.
Support the Program
The program depends on the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a contribution to support one of our teams or help to grow our endowment.
