Did you know that we work with approximately 120 students each year from nine Austin ISD high schools and Manor ISD high school? After monitoring water quality at one of the testing sites along Austin streams and rivers, River Watchers go to our EcoHouse, where they play games, receive tutoring, and hang out with River Watchers from different high schools. We provide healthy snacks for them and then we drive each student to their home.
Drone or unmanned aerial vehicle
Since 1992, Austin Youth River Watch has been monitoring water quality along Austin streams and rivers. We now have 27 testing sites and more than 24 years of data. The donation of a drone would be especially helpful with our Service Learning Program. We have already started several riparian improvement projects along Austin streams and a drone would help us explore these riparian corridors to find opportunities for new projects.
New or gently used furniture – couch, chairs, desks, and a kitchen table
Our EcoHouse is a second home for River Watchers. They play lively Uno games, help each other with homework, and eat healthy snacks together at the kitchen table. They engage in discussions about how to be environmental stewards, participate in financial workshops, and hang out with each other in our living room.
