Volunteers make the WEN world go round. Join us in the stream or from the comfort of your own home working on Stream Team data.

Our mission

WEN’s mission is to foster knowledge, awareness, and appreciation of watershed health through citizen science, youth and school engagement, and outreach to our communities.



We could not do what what we do without the support of donors and grantors. Your support helps WEN provide field experience through citizen science stream monitoring and education programs for students.   


Black Water

Backyard Citizen Science 
Anyone can be a citizen scientist
and make a difference in their community by observing the natural world around them; recording information over time; and sharing that information with others. 

Join WEN in our new Backyard Citizen Science Program where we provide a guided training, packet with activities, and toolkit for you and your group to independently explore, observe, document, and learn about your backyard stream, creek, or pond. 

Are you interested in trying out a kit? Learn more about this program and how to get involved at our B
