The Leaf Pack Network is an initiative of Stroud™ Water Research Center. The Stroud Center seeks to advance knowledge and stewardship of freshwater systems through global research, education, and watershed restoration.
“Preserving our environment is one of the most important issues my generation has to deal with. The “Mountaintop to Tap” trek will help many people realize the importance of preserving our watershed so that we don’t lose that which is so vital to life: freshwater.”
Six Leaf Pack workshops were conducted within the mid-Atlantic region and Leaf Pack went to conferences in St. Paul, Minnesota, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Baltimore, Maryland. 13 scientists and two educators went to Peru, to conduct research in the headwaters of the Amazon River.
Riverkeeper, Stroud Water Research Center, and Hudson Basin River Watch partnered to implement a program to harness kids’ fascination with bugs in order to measure water quality in the New York City Drinking Water Supply Watershed.
