Educators at West Virginia Wesleyan College and Buckhannon-Upshur High School teamed up to not only teach high school students about local streams, but also to help out a local watershed association.

Chemistry students at the high school collected samples of water from local streams. They took them back to the classroom and analyzed them with the help of teachers, and several Wesleyan students.
"This is a great opportunity because this is real science. This is why we sit in the room. Students ask, 'why do we have to learn this?', well we're out there and this is real information for the watershed association to use," said Mike Lemley, a chemistry teacher at B-UHS.

The students data also helps the Buckhannon River Watershed Association with their annual reports.
