Education and outreach activities will be targeted at engaging Idaho K-12, the public, and a new critical mass of graduate students and undergraduates in Critical Zone Science. We will develop an observatory that can act as a community resource and living laboratory for engaging the public, training a broad cadre of scientists, and developing outreach products, activities, and curricula for science educators.
