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.
The app helps users log and share data they collect in the field, interpret the data through learning pop-ups, and export it to create databases.
Scientists and educators from Montana State University and Stroud Water Research Center have created an exciting extension of the Leaf Pack Network: the Rock Pack Experiment.
Once you have gotten to know your watershed, learned about your river’s uses, values and threats, and examined its physical habitat, benthic macroinvertebrate community, and water quality, there are many activities you can do to protect and improve your river’s health.
