Scientists, science-curious, outdoor enthusiasts, and just plain curious, this is for you!

Science teacher Doug Eccher and Outer Range outdoor education staff will lead participants through a morning in the life of an aquatic biologist. With stations dedicated to water quality assessment, invertebrate studies, drift nets, stream flow analysis, and fly fishing, participants will get a sense of river health, a chance to work as aquatic biologists, and their feet wet (literally, as we'll be IN the river). Data collected will later be displayed for the public at the Montrose Library and Outer Range.

For ages 9(ish) to 17(ish). Participants MUST register at After registration, you'll receive waivers and more information!
