Join Us In Summer 2022
The Watershed Institute has been protecting the vital water resources of central New Jersey’s watersheds for over 70 years. A key part of our mission has always been connecting people to their water sources and the environment.
The Watershed Academy for High School Students offers immersive environmental investigations on the Watershed Reserve. Each five-day session engages students in a world of science where they ask questions and identify problems, gain skills and knowledge, propose solutions, and learn about career opportunities. Students will get hands-on experience as they participate in ongoing scientific studies at the Watershed and learn how to help influence environmental policy in their own communities.
These experiences engage students in science and stewardship practices to elevate them into awareness, investigation, action, and leadership as they prepare to enter adult roles in their communities.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, most activities will be held outdoors and will be socially distanced. While indoors, students and staff will wear masks at all times. We require proof of vaccination from all students. Restrictions may change based on CDC and state health guidelines.
