Stream Monitoring Curriculum and Opportunities to Assist with Field Trips

Have you ever wanted to incorporate field studies to your middle or high school curriculum? We have adapted UW-Extension's and DNR's Water Action Volunteers' Stream Monitoring Program methods for use by middle and high school students. The base curriculum includes one week of in-class and field activities to help students:

  1. understand how our uses of the land affect water quality
  2. take action to share their results in your local community

All activities are linked with Wisconsin Model Academic Standards. This draft curriculum is currently being piloted by a dozen teachers across WI. Based on teacher input, the curriculum will be revised over the winter and shared broadly across the state in 2010.

Volunteer monitors are being sought to assist with half to one-day field trips being conducted as part of this curriculum. If you are interested in sharing the curriculum with a teacher or school in your area, or interested in assisting with a local field trip, contact Peggy Compton.
