Education Outreach


To promote sustainable water use through education, our staff scientists give 40-50 informative presentations each year about their research findings to a wide variety of audiences, including scientific conferences and symposia as well as government agencies, civic groups and students. PowerPoint presentations of some of our most recent presentations are available to view. Contact us if you would like one of our staff to give a presentation to your group about our research or if you want copies of other PowerPoint shows we have given.


We offer training seminars and workshops for uses of our data as well as tailored water resource topics for junior high and high school teachers designed to meet science academic content standards. Some workshops provide graduate college credit and our educator contact will work with individuals or groups to create custom training as well.


The National Center for Water Quality Research staff is dedicated to making our research findings accessible. Publications generated by the NCWQR staff are listed by type in the links (at left). Some titles have links to a journal article or report; for those publications that do not have links, contact us for availability of reprints.

Sandusky River Watershed Symposium

The purpose of our recent symposium was to bring scientists with data from the Sandusky River, together with government policy-makers, professionals with technical expertise about remedial programs, funding agencies, landowners who can implement good management practices, and researchers who can evaluate the effectiveness of the water quality programs. For a full listing of topics and PowerPoint presentations, use the “Symposium” link (at left).
