BTW Students

Welcome!  Bridging the Watershed is an environmental education program created by naturalists, classroom teachers, and national park rangers working together to bring a unique experience to secondary students across the DC metro region. This program gives you the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, the opportunity to visit a national park, and the opportunity to be a field scientist.

You’ll find all sorts of cool things on our web site – games, photos, student reflections – but mostly, we want you to use these pages to get ready for a field study. You will have much more fun if you come prepared!
