More than 350 students from seven schools within the Fairfax County Public Schools system participate as citizen scientists to help staff monitor floatables in and adjacent to their local streams. Three out of the seven schools are designated as Title I schools. The sites for the floatable monitoring program span multiple watersheds and create a monitoring network across Fairfax County. Staff provide an introductory presentation to the program, data collection training and assistance with field monitoring.
