Based on our mission to enhance both knowledge and stewardship of freshwater resources, Stroud Water Research Center has supplemented its research efforts by developing education programs to communicate our science to public audiences in both formal and informal settings. 

Starting with such projects as the Leaf Pack Experiment Kit and the Leaf Pack Network®, through our Art and Science workshops to Model My Watershed and Geoscience Education projects, we reach thousands of students, hundreds of teachers and many members of the public annually.
