Watershed Citizenship Learning Community

500 375 Stroud Water Research Center

A collaboration with Cabrini College to encourage environmental stewardship in their students.

In collaboration with Cabrini College, we developed courses that use the watershed as the means to instill an interest in the science associated with the preservation and conservation of freshwater resources and encourage environmental stewardship in non-major/pre-major undergraduate students.

We aimed to empower these students with the tools, knowledge and motivation to become lifelong citizen scientists. To accomplish this, we developed tandem courses (Watershed Ecology and Watershed Citizenship) that integrated service learning in the local watershed.
