EcoSpark's Changing Currents program introduces grade 8-12 students from across the Greater Toronto Area (Toronto, Peel, Durham, and York school boards) to their area's watersheds. Students get outside, put on hip waders, explore a local river stream, and learn about its importance and quality.
By participating in the program students will:
Use benthic macro-invertebrate bio-monitoring to examine the health of their local river or stream (it's easy!), Contribute to a GTA-wide study of watersheds, and Have the chance to take action around what they discover
