StreamWebs is Oregon Sea Grant's online watershed database and stewardship application, designed to provide classrooms with the tools they need to conduct authentic, hands-on watershed monitoring and restoration projects. StreamWebs offers teachers a path to bridge field experiences back to the classroom using StreamWebs' data input and analysis tools and compare their data with other schools across Oregon.
