Watershed Science & Education

Three Waters Reserve is home to the Lower Sugar River Field Station, administered by the Lower Sugar River Watershed Association, a charitable conservation organization founded in 2011 to empower citizens of a healthy watershed.  The restored oak savanna, woodlands, prairies, and Sugar River forested riparian wetlands of the former golf course provide a unique living laboratory for landowners, students of all ages, teachers, and researchers interested in hands-on ecological restoration and benefits to biodiversity, water quality, and watershed health.  This locally-based field experience is especially important at a time when our communities and economies are challenged by water quality concerns in a changing climate.

Visit the Field Station page to learn more about educational resources, scheduling school field trips, registering for workshops, and signing-up for citizen-based monitoring training, or contact Susan Lehnhardt, Director of Science and Education,, or call 608.558.5941.
