service learning in the great outdoors
River Wranglers' mentoring program pairs high school students with upper elementary school students, giving teens the opportunity to learn through teaching, while also modeling responsible stewardship of natural resources for elementary-aged youth. High school science teachers at Carson, Churchill County, Dayton, Douglas, Silver Stage, Silver State Charter, and Virginia City High Schools can sign up their class to become mentors.
Teens in the Great Basin watershed area can apply for the River Wranglers Teens Educating Communities (TECS) Program. This service learning opportunity involves hands-on learning with adult mentors, developing an interactive display table, and using their traveling exhibit to attend events and educate the community about watershed issues.
