#SummerScienceFriday | Summer Recap

Since the start of the season, our team has sampled the LA River Watershed’s “Safe to Swim” sites 12 times, posted seven #SummerScienceFriday’s to inform Angelenos about the health of our watershed, and have provided a number of resources for educators to use for out-of-classroom learning. Each week, we have also had the privilege of educating you all on LA River Watershed topics and how they can relate to your at home learning environment. Our team has thoroughly enjoyed communicating this foundational information in a way that is easy to understand and accessible for people of all backgrounds. We hope we’ve made learning at home a little easier and more fun during this time.

With the links and brief summaries below, we hope that our readers will continue to be inspired to become exemplary watershed stewards all year round. Until next year, thank you all for tuning in!
