Stream Safari - a video series for self-guided exploration [video]

This Stream Safari video series will walk you through all you need to know to safely and comfortably get out to your nearby stream, river, lake, or pond and explore the water quality. Based on the Stream Safari curriculum from UNH Cooperative Extension's STEM Docent Program, your guides, Sarah and Megan, will define terms & concepts, discuss how to choose a stream site, safety considerations when bringing youth to the stream, collection tools and techniques, and so much more!
