The OCWC partnered with local Sedona Middle School teachers for the second year to develop a two week comprehensive Water Quality Curriculum that details water quality, quantity, and conservation as well as habitat degradation. Part of the curriculum partners with Project WET.
The curriculum includes presentation of the Watershed Terrain Model, and a Slide Rock State Park field trip to learn water sampling techniques and to cleanup local trash with over 150 students participating. The curriculum is free and available on our website for all to use, however, it was written for middle school level science.

This year, during the week of November 17-21 the OCWC and the University of Arizona hosted a "Water Sampling Week" at Slide Rock State Park. The OCWC invited eight local schools to learn the basics of water sampling techniques, understand water quality and the contributing factors of E. coli in Oak Creek.
