Stroud Center biologists are working with researchers and managers in the ACOSA region of southwest Costa Rica to collect and disseminate information on streams and rivers to a variety of community stakeholders. The two-year project, which started in 2013, will involve education programs to teach school students, researchers, and other citizens about stream health and monitoring protocols; professional surveys conducted by Stroud Center biologists; and development of an online water atlas to store, visualize and share data among government managers and scientists, nongovernmental organizations and citizens.
