Sponsored Post – from Austin Youth River Watch
Every year, Austin Youth River Watch transforms and inspires 120 high-school students through environmental education, community engagement, and adventure. Now they need your help.
Austin Youth River Watch offers nature-based, experiential, and service-oriented afterschool and summer programs in environmental science. Their students, the “River Watchers,” collect, analyze, and publish water-quality data from 27 different sites along local waterways. River Watchers learn from AYRW’s professional educators and peer mentors how to perform detailed scientific procedures for monitoring everything from pH and water temperature, to complex pollution indicators (like dissolved oxygen and E. coli concentration).
How can you help?
Austin Youth River Watch is in the middle of a fundraising campaign. Just $75 can support a River Watcher’s student stipend for a month. You can donate here>>
