The WikiWatershed® Toolkit is an initiative of Stroud Water Research Center to support citizens, conservation practitioners, municipal decision-makers, researchers, educators, and students to collaboratively advance knowledge and stewardship of fresh water.
The toolkit is made up of the following tools:
- Model My Watershed®, a powerful web app that lets users compare how different conservation or development scenarios could modify runoff and water quality.
- The Runoff Simulation, which shows how land use and soil determine whether rainfall infiltrates the soil, runs off, or is evaporated and transpired by plants.
- Monitor My Watershed®, a data portal that lets you explore macroinvertebrate data from the Leaf Pack Network® and sensor datasets from EnviroDIY™, an environmental science and monitoring community.
- EnviroDIY, a community for do-it-yourself environmental science and monitoring.
- The Leaf Pack Network, an international network of teachers, students, and citizen monitors investigating their local stream ecosystems.
- Macroinvertebrates.org, an interdisciplinary effort to create an innovative resource for aquatic insect identification to support citizen science activities.
- The Water Quality Mobile App, a water-monitoring learning tool designed for use by educators and their students, citizen scientists, and researchers.
