Tree and Watershed Investigations (TWIG)

In this “hands dirty, feet wet” program, students will learn how trees are vital to healthy watersheds. They’ll measure temperature and turbidity in a stream, search for macroinvertebrates to make predictions about water quality, and conduct experiments to increase their understanding of infiltration, sedimentation, and pollution. Throughout the field experience, students will examine how their personal and collective actions can help protect and restore sustainable forests and healthy watersheds.
