Edgewood Wingra Watershed Project

The Edgewood Wingra Watershed Project connects students with the local community, using the Lake Wingra watershed as a focus. Students are given the opportunity to extend their classroom learning by engaging in real-world issues, working with others to identify and solve problems, and presenting the results of their work to the public.

Edgewood faculty, students, and staff collaborate with many other organizations and individuals to promote understanding and good management of the Wingra Watershed. Especially important is our partnership with the Friends of Lake Wingra, whose mission is "to promote a healthy Lake Wingra through an active watershed community."
