Education & Outreach



The MRA Community Education Committee seeks to provide relevant and accessible watershed-based curriculum to all of the Mad River’s user groups through formal and informal learning opportunities. The learning opportunities will include, but not be limited to, (1) media, (2) presentations with existing organizations, (3) tabling existing events, (4) web presence, and (5) schools.



Through our Education program, Mad River Alliance will strengthen watershed stewardship within our community and use that strength to help recover the Mad River watershed.
