AGUA UNIVERSITY
A set of environmental workshops that targets minority and underserved high school students.  Students are exposed to topics that explain the basics of water, its science and our connection to it (watersheds), as well as how our everyday local actions have an impact in other areas.  They learn how the management of stressors and resources can either be beneficial or detrimental to a system (watershed management) but more importantly, they are taught the tools to make a difference in their community.Agua_University.html
