Austin Youth River Watch

About Austin Youth River Watch

Austin Youth River Watch transforms and inspires youth through environmental education, community engagement, and adventure. Our students learn to collect, analyze, and publish water-quality data along local waterways; perform environmental restoration projects with dozens of community partners; and participate in several outdoor experiences, often for the first time. Our program is intentionally designed to be accessible to youth in communities rendered underserved due to institutionalized inequalities, who have had less access to resources and opportunities. Through our program, students become local environmental heroes, gain leadership and collaborative skills in interdisciplinary settings, and have transformative experiences that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
