Stream Scholars is a week-long hands-on exploration of stream ecology and conservation for middle and high school students that includes three days of camping.
This program was initially funded by the USEPA, and later by the MARPAT Foundation, WV Conservation Agency, and our members. We now have thirteen years of engaging West Virginia middle and high school students in week long explorations of stream science.
Our Scholars enjoy exploration of stream science that includes exciting canoeing or boating, and engaging with professionals in the fields of conservation, environmental science, and ecology. Stream Scholars has a three-year rotation of camping at different locations. Scholars who attend three years in a row will camp at Spruce Knob, the highest peak in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, Point Lookout (MD) and Westmoreland State Park (VA) where the Potomac river meets the Chesapeake Bay. On the Virginia trip, Scholars stop in D.C. to meet their elected officials and tour the Capital.
