Bridging the Watershed

Science in the Great Outdoors

Help your students discover science in National and state parks across Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. with Alice Ferguson Foundation’s Bridging the Watershed program. We partner with the National Park Service and state parks to give students the opportunity to engage in meaningful watershed educational experiences, explore curriculum-based outdoor science, and observe human impacts on the world around them.

Bridging the Watershed is a joint project between the National Park Service on the Potomac River and schools. Watersheds are crucial river and regional geographic concepts. This project could be easily replicated for your area.
