Indeed our world is one of water.. without which there would be no life.
There is nothing we, as an organization, get more satisfaction from than working with students learning about this precious resource.. Over the years we have led student groups on dozens of streams studying land use and the associated water quality... bloated cows just upstream from a municipal water intake, rivers with no riparian buffers at all, rivers whose major consumers have gone to great lengths to preserve and protect the water quality.. the entire spectrum of responses to water as a limited resource.
We also wrapped up our after school enrichment programming this week..
Next week, we host the Interstate Commission for the Potomac River Basin as it, in turn, hosts paddlers and watershed activists from across the country...
