- Designed for the NYC and Watersheds TIC program
Many students travel a long distance to reach the watershed streams that are home to trout. Mapping the journey to visit the watershed can be a engaging way to learn about local infrastructure, geology, and geography. How many bridges or streams will you cross? How many miles will you travel? How are you connected to these habitats and the resources they provide?
Have students draw a map of the path you will be taking and compare these to a Google Earth view of the bus route. Mark specific sites on the map and check them off during your trip to and from the stream.
