The River Mile is a network of educators, students, resource managers, and scientists in the Columbia River Watershed exploring the essential question: "How do relationships among components of an ecosystem affect watershed health?" Network members share research, resources, and real world scientific data on watershed health.

K-12th grade students and teachers engage in science education outdoors and explore scientific practices through real-world research projects. Groups become intimately familiar with their outdoor classroom by spending time in the field investigating and researching their section of the watershed.

For more information, please visit The River Mile website. You can also join our email list to be notified of the latest network news.
