The Watershed Academy


609-737-3735


The Watershed Academy for High School Students offers immersive environmental investigations on the Watershed Reserve. Each five-day session engages students in a world of science where they ask questions and identify problems, gain skills and knowledge, propose solutions, and learn about career opportunities. Students will get hands-on experience as they participate in ongoing scientific studies at the Watershed and learn how to help influence environmental policy in their own communities.

These experiences engage students in science and stewardship practices to elevate them into awareness, investigation, action, and leadership as they prepare to enter adult roles in their communities.
