SCIENCE IS CAPTURED ON OUR LOCAL RIVER

Deployment: Urban Native Waterlife™ Explorations Oxbow Park
March 30th, 2017

An exploratory study locally connecting inner-city youth and military veterans through an incredible, local, culturally-rich, scientific one-day outing at Oxbow Park. Connecting the dots between the urban river to dissecting and understanding the migration habitat for salmon in our local freshwater system. By exploring the aquatic life and learning about the river's personal history, we understand our local river and the surrounding area and connect more with the community to protect, preserve, and find healing. Guided by Oregon Metro Leader Dan Daly who spear heads the process with SRI youth building a knowledge-base in conservation to become ambassadors of the natural environment. One full day of engagement + to one full day of an deeper impact to our youth! Thank you Dan/Metro for coming out and supporting this efforts of engagement to our youth.
