South Dakota Ag Connection - 05/14/2018

South Dakota teens ages 13 to 18, are invited to navigate the Missouri and learn about water quality during SDSU Extension and South Dakota 4-H Project WATER, held July 23-27.

"Water is a resource we all rely upon. This learning adventure gives youth hands on experience in canoeing, gathering water quality samples and an overall look at water quality in South Dakota," said Katherine Jaeger, SDSU Extension Youth Outdoor Education Field Specialist.

Project WATER (Watershed Assessment Through Environmental Research) will take teens down a stretch of the Missouri River during which they will test water quality at various sites.

Participants will receive instruction in canoe safety and camping, as well as additional lessons from SDSU Extension professionals on water quality testing, environmental indicators, and various uses of technology in environmental research.

SDSU Wellness Center will provide the necessary gear and safety for this venture.

In its first year, Project WATER is limited to 12 youth. Enrollment in South Dakota 4-H is not required to participate. Registration will open on May 14 and will remain open until June 8. To register, visit the iGrow Events page.

To help cover costs, registration for Project WATER is $350 per participant and includes all meals and equipment.
