WET Watershed Evaluation Teams
Every fall Wallowa County 6th grade students monitor the Wallowa, Imnaha and Grande Ronde River guided by partners such as the Nez Perce Tribe Fisheries, US Fish & Wildlife Services, and Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife. This interaction gives students opportunities to meet natural resource professionals. Students collect water quality, macroinvertebrate, riparian, and stream channel data. Then, the students input and analyze the data on StreamWebs and present their findings in class.
The program seeks to increase:
- Youth understanding of local watershed science
- Youth understanding of using science in land management
- Positive attitude toward stewardship, endangered species, and watershed restoration
