Adopt-A-SNOTEL Site Program
The Adopt-A-SNOTEL Site Program offers students in the western states
the excitement of monitoring conditions at a remote SNOTEL site. With this
near real-time data as a starting point, lessons in the areas of science,
math, hydrology, water quality, environment, and conservation can be
developed. Computer access of the SNOTEL data adds another learning
opportunity. To date, over eighty schools have been enrolled in the
Syracuse Junior High School, Utah
The goals of the Adopt-A-SNOTEL Site Program are:
- Make Teachers and students aware of the SNOTEL data resource
collected by the NRCS.
- Encourage the development of a strong conservation ethic with
respect to soil, water, and environmental resources.
- Inspire and make students aware of disciplines and careers in soil
and water resources.
- Promote the expanded use of information collected by the NRCS.
