Youth Education in the Watershed
USRWA is currently working on details for two youth education opportunities this spring in the watershed.
In April, children from the East Madison Community Center will take a field trip to the Sugar River and participate in a 90 minute program USRWA is developing. Many of these children do not get a chance to interact with natural areas very often, which makes this experience important and hopefully lots of fun. Thanks to the Dane County Office of Lakes & Watersheds for helping to coordinate this day.
In June, USRWA is partnering with New Century School in Verona to provide a day on the Sugar River just before summer vacation. Students will get hands-on experience with water quality sampling, invasive species and canoeing the river.
