The activities are designed for high school students. Area schools are invited each year to apply for the program. Once approved and notified, the classroom teacher attends a training on the program and the curriculum. Teachers are asked to do pre- and post- work activities with students. They are to ensure that students and chaperones understand their responsibilities. This procedure may be formalized by using the application, contract, and teacher planning forms found in the Appendix.
Participants work in small groups led by resource specialists. For a quality experience, groups should contain 12 students or less per station at any one time. Groups with names like Mayflies, Riffles, Fry, Salmonids, Shredders, and Cedars, rotate through each of the six stations until all groups converge at Watershed Wonders.
