The River Mile is a network of educators, students, resource managers and scientists in the Columbia River Watershed exploring the essential question:

“How do relationships among components of an ecosystem affect watershed health?”

For more info browse the website or contact our education specialist.

TRM is a participant driven approach to learning about, researching and exploring the watershed health of the Columbia River. Participants share best practices, lessons learned, examples, links to resources and real world scientific data.

Students and teachers engage in science education outdoors and explore scientific practices through real-world resource projects. Groups become intimately familiar with their outdoor classroom by spending time in the field investigating and researching their section of the watershed.
