Together Again; Your Watershed, Your Community, Your Forum
The 27th Annual River Watch Forum was held March 30th, 2022 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, ND for the first time since 2019. Hank Kohler kicked the day off by recounting his journeys to Hudson Bay in 1979 and to the Gulf of Mexico in 2021 – both from the same lake!
Throughout the day, students learned from three different natural resource professionals who spoke about their careers and how they interact with water.
River Watch Teams competed against each other in this year’s assignment by hosting a River Watch event in their community. Each project was judged on marketing materials, a video summary, and a written report detailing planning, hosting, and evaluating their event.
