In May and June 2017, volunteers with the Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership attended five different events around the watershed where they shared lessons and games about water ecology with youth of all ages from elementary to high school. The volunteers spent a total of 20-plus hours participating in watershed education during those two months, and reached up to 1,000 students. Here are some photos of the fun activities.
