Austin Youth River Watch

Austin Youth River Watch

Austin Youth River Watch is a multi-year, after-school and summer program for high school students, combining peer mentoring with intensive environmental education.

Our students collect, analyze, and publish water-quality data from Austin-area streams and rivers. They report their data to local and statewide agencies. (Click here to see our data.)

Guided by a volunteer Board of community leaders, the mission of Austin Youth River Watch is to advance personal and academic achievement through environmental monitoring, education, and adventure.

In 2011, our Board led us in the creation of a new Strategic Plan, which is guiding our activities and growth over the next few years. Click this link to download a PDF of the plan: Austin Youth River Watch Strategic Plan 2012-2015
