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.
To educate New York City residents about their drinking water supply, twelve high school students traveled 200-miles in July, from the Catskill Mountains to NYC. It took them three weeks to hike, tube, and row from the source of the water supply to the city itself – from Mountaintop to Tap.
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.
