Alberta RiverWatch

RiverWatch
The RiverWatch mission is to enable all Grade 9 science students in Calgary and Edmonton to participate in this national award winning science resource program.
What is the best way to study a river? We think it’s by taking a river trip aboard large inflated rafts equipped as floating laboratories!
Alberta RiverWatch helps science classes to explore a 10 km section of their local river during a raft float trip. Along the way, students make shoreline stops to conduct water chemistry and biology tests. Back at school, the water quality data is used to answer the question, “How healthy is your river?”
