Teaching and outreach resource: video series explains human impacts on freshwater

The Water Walk video series is a tour of water in Wisconsin’s Yahara Watershed, the region that encompasses the Madison-area lakes–Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, Wingra and Kegonsa. The series explains how the people who live, work, and play here impact their drinking water, streams, and lakes. It is a great resource for teachers and outreach professionals interested in increasing watershed literacy.

The series was produced by the UW-Madison’s Water Sustainability and Climate project for the UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Water Sustainability and Climate project is an endeavor to understand how water, and the many other benefits nature provides people, could change over time.
