The University of Idaho’s Waters Of the West (WoW) Confluence Project brings field-based watershed science to science classrooms in Northern Idaho. Our goal is to get students outdoors to learn and understand their watersheds’ water resources stories. We partner with local organizations and government agencies to bring expertise and examples of local solutions to community water resource challenges. In the spring, students from all over Northern Idaho will meet at the University of Idaho for a two-day Youth Water Summit, where they will share their watershed investigations and propose solutions to local challenges.
To see what the students are up to, select a school from the “Confluence Schools” Menu at the top of the page. Check out photos, student reflections, analysis of field collected data.
