Building a Watershed Community of Caretakers

students in stream

Friends of the Fox River (FOTFR) fulfills the most important part of our mission: education, through our unique experiential streams education experiences. For the last several years, our outreach educators have been hosting up to 5,000 students in boots to participate in field studies in a stream near their school. They learn to make physical, chemical and biological measurements to determine water quality and health of that tributary to the Fox River. They learn about the life of that stream and come to understand how every stream and river supports a web of life. Now the demand for this hands-on, science learning about the student’s local environment is growing and we need your help to meet it.
