Education

There are 4 AMAZING ways
your students can be part of BEMP:


Contact BEMP Education at bemp.education@bemp.org for an educational opportunity. 


1. Exploring the Outdoors


Learn about changes in the ecosystem through nature journaling. BEMP educators will lead students through various activities that allow students to explore the nature around them and what nature means to them.

2. Bosque Data Jam


In this 5 part series, student will learn how to collect data in their environment, graph, and analyze that data. The end of these lessons will lead to a creative project which display their findings.

3. Monthly Monitoring Education


Contact us to learn how your students can get involved in our Monthly Monitoring education and how you can use BEMP data in your classroom.

4. Asynchronous Lessons

River of Change

Stormwater Science

Adapted from the Bosque Education Guide, learn what the Rio Grande and its bosque looked like 2000 years ago (Rio Bravo), what caused it to look the way it does today (Rio Manso), and what it could look like in the future (Rio Nuevo).

Explore what BEMP is doing to monitor the Rio Grande and its bosque, while discovering your own ways to improve the health of our ecosystem.

This program teaches that the health of the Rio Grande is directly tied to the health of its surrounding watershed and arroyos. Students investigate how a storm impacts river health by looking at a watershed model with different sized communities and the pollution each one produces.

Encourage students to learn about stormwater drainages in Albuquerque, how that affects our Rio Grande, and what you can do to help limit pollution in the river!

Rio Bravo
Lesson 1

BEMP students gain scientific literacy through participation in real world science.

“BEMP gave me the opportunity to translate my love for the place I live into useful action generating knowledge about it. As a younger student, I learned methods of ecological inquiry; as a college intern, I had the opportunity to design my own research projects and ask my own questions. I am so grateful to BEMP for being the catalyst of my scientific career.” Rowan Converse, former BEMP student participant, college intern, and now wildlife biologist.
