Global Impact: Preserving and Conserving Fresh Water Around the World

450 338 Stroud Water Research Center

Because tropical regions struggle with the same water quality concerns as temperate regions, we’re using our Costa Rica field station as a launch pad for researching tropical streams. Our scientists are advancing knowledge of freshwater systems on five continents and our educators are using the Leaf Pack Network® materials to teach freshwater stewardship throughout North, Central and South America, with plans to expand to Africa and China.
