The Water Quality Report Card is a new educational tool published by CSI that guides kids and families through a self-led exploration of the aquatic life found in streams and what different types of life indicate about water quality. The report card is a wonderful tool for outdoor and at-home education, providing children and families with the opportunity to learn more about environmental sciences. These guides are free and available upon request. You can pick up a Water Quality Report Card from the CSI’s water testing lab here in Ithaca, or you can also request booklets from CSI by emailing Biomonitoring Coordinator Adrianna Hirtler. Copies of the Water Quality Report Card are available at our participating community partners listed below.
- Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County
- Ithaca Sciencenter
- Discover Cayuga Lake (DCL)
- Cayuga Nature Center

We look forward to helping you get outside, explore your favorite stream, and learn about the amazing world of water!
