The WatershED curriculum was developed by the Boulder Creek Watershed Initiative and the City of Boulder's Stormwater Quality Office with the help of teachers in the Boulder area. It has been modified for students, teachers and the general public for the BASIN website. We are grateful for all who contributed to this effort and acknowledge the efforts to the community.

For information on your own set of the original WatershED curriculum, contact the city of Boulder's Water Resource Educator at (303) 413-7365 or the Boulder Creek Wateshed Initiative at (303) 245-8486.
