      A new project, Arizona Rivers is looking for teachers, students, citizen
      scientists, and student organizations (scouts, 4-H, FFA, science clubs,
      etc.) who are interested in partnering with volunteer river monitors and
      local watershed experts to:

      collect water quality data
      investigate riparian ecology and habitats
      monitor stream restoration efforts
      create student-based research projects

      This is great place-based environmental science opportunity for teachers
      and students, an innovative way to implement science and math outside a
      traditional classroom environment and improve our understanding of
      Arizona's precious water resources.

      Our mission is to facilitate collaborations between teachers/students and
      scientists/watershed managers to promote long-term research and monitoring
      of riparian environments in Arizona.

      Our next workshop is July 17-20 at the Mingus Springs Camp, between
      Cottonwood and Prescott. Hope to see you there! Please register today.

      Participants in workshops receive a $300 stipend for attending and travel
      reimbursement. Teachers are eligible for $250 mini grants to help get
      their monitoring activities going.

      Please contact Martha Whitaker (mplw@...) if you have
      any questions or get more information at www.azrivers.org
