Purgatoire Watershed Partnership

Trinidad, Colorado

Grant amount:


The Purgatoire Watershed Partnership will use grant funds to establish River Watch chapters at Trinidad Middle School and Primero High School within the watershed and support required training for teachers. River Watch membership brings with it measurement equipment with which students will go to the Purgatoire River and take measurements. They will learn about the river and watershed. Data will be reported to River Watch.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from equipment and supplies for taking environmental measurements to recognition and support for students presenting their research projects and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
