Student Monitoring

Working with Santa Fe middle and high school students, student monitoring occurs at a study site between Nichols and McClure Reservoirs in the Upper Watershed.  Each class is provided with a pre-visit to the classroom to map out the Santa Fe River Watershed and introduce field collection techniques.  During a field trip to the Upper Watershed, students collect data including water quality variables, benthic macroinvertebrates, and canopy cover. Data is summarized, interpreted, and made available to local decision makers.

Thank you to the City of Santa Fe for its support of this program.
