The Watershed Tour is the best way a teacher can demonstrate water testing and watershed study without actually going to a river or stream. Students take on a virtual watershed study where they “test” water in 4 different locations along the virtual river.

This introduces students to the changes found along a watershed and demonstrates how man has influenced water sources. This tour educates students about stream ecology, water quality issues and their own connection to a watershed. Included is everything needed for testing along with instructions, data sheets and games. It is recommended for students in grades 4-8.
