Abstract - The donation of a relatively large tract of essentially open space surrounded by urban and suburban development at a short distance from the main campus of William Paterson University has created an opportunity for the development of courses and research focusing on the urban watershed. We have been in the process of developing new courses and modifying old ones to fully exploit the potential of this site for hands-on inquiry based instruction. The laboratory facilities will serve as a focal center for urban watershed studies involving university students, environmental groups, and local K-12 teachers.
