NASELLE - The seventh grade students in Mrs. Erickson's class in the Naselle-Grays River Valley Middle School have been studying watersheds through a grant program sponsored by the Grays Harbor County Solid Waste Program and Grays Harbor College called the Model Watershed Program.

This program brings students and faculty from the college into the classroom to teach about our watershed, recycling and sustainability.

Program participants will be visiting Naselle school two days this spring. They will conduct several all-day activities with local students, including vermicomposting, storm drain/ditch discovery, answering "what is a watershed" and doing a field study of our area.

The students are learning what a watershed is and how the location of builds in the watershed effect the watershed. They learned about how salmon are affected by matter put in the water shed at its source.
