On Sept. 20, the class will meet at Soroco High School and carpool to various outdoor field locations in the Flat Tops.

Agency staff from the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Upper Yampa Conservancy District will be on hand to explain the Yampa River’s watershed, its streamflow rates, snowpack, various uses and other data for the past few years. Teachers will get hands-on experience with the in-depth U.S. Forest Service Water & Wildlife Investigations.
