Stroud Center scientists and a colleague from Lehigh University are studying how well best management practices on farms may protect drinking-water sources from pathogens like Cryptosporidium and E. coli. They are monitoring sites in the White Clay and Red Clay creek watersheds.

Expanded WikiWatershed® Toolkit Debuts
WikiWatershed is a Web toolkit presented by Stroud Water Research Center to help citizens, conservation practitioners, municipal decision-makers, researchers, educators, and students advance knowledge and stewardship of fresh water. The WikiWatershed toolkit now includes six tools.
When Kristen Jellison, Ph.D., started her internship at the Stroud Center in the summer of 1996, she wasn’t sure where to go in her career. She got her first taste of investigative research while working in our dissolved organic matter and microbial ecology lab, and she was immediately hooked.

15 Years of the Leaf Pack Network®
The Leaf Pack Network helps people assess their stream’s health by performing a simple leaf pack experiment. Since the Stroud Center launched the Leaf Pack Network in late 2000, groups registered in 38 U.S. states and 11 countries have completed 671 experiments, tallying nearly 100,000 macroinvertebrates! Can you spot which states don’t have groups yet?
