How to Participate
FreshWaterLIVE provides teachers, students and the general public with informative and interactive ways to learn about freshwater. Check out this web site to:
- WATCH A VIDEO and join scientists as we follow water on a journey through a watershed in the Western United States. The video travels from the headwaters in the mountain peaks, through the protective forests, into our cities and countryside, and ultimately to the sea.
- WATCH A VIDEO following water on a journey through a watershed in the Eastern United States.
- WATCH A VIDEO taped live at Grand Lake, Colorado, featuring questions from students and answers by Carl Chambers, a U.S. Forest Service hydrologist, and Bob Raynolds, a geologist with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
