The 7th grade science curriculum at Bosque School is centered around the Watershed Watch program. Watershed Watch is a collaboration, between schools and the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish
, focused on stream monitoring in the Rio Grande watershed. Bosque School 7th grade students monitor water quantity and quality in the Las Huertas Creek watershed in the Sandia Mountains and the Jemez Creek watershed in the Jemez Mountains.
Students measure physical, biological, and chemical aspects of streams on a monthly basis. They gain a sense of the health of the watershed through analysis of their data, and present that data to communities and agencies at the end of each school year. The experience of doing real science in a field setting helps support an understanding of the connections between humans and water in New Mexico.
