Stroud Water Research Center
Working with Stroud Water Research Center allows students to be citizen scientists, monitoring the water on our campus and assessing environmental impacts to the watershed.
By partnering with Stroud, which does research in fresh water ecology, it gives children an opportunity to study the whole watershed. It's where they get to experience how the chemistry of the creek impacts what’s living in the creek and how what’s living in the creek affects the geography of the creek.
