The Mark Creek Watershed Research and Rehabilitation Project proposes a communitybased educational and community development program that includes students and educators from Kindergarten through university in a small watershed surrounding Kimberley, B. C. in Canada. By focussing on the ecology and the environmental and resource use issues in a watershed the students will acquire the attitudes and skills that will enable them to be responsible stewards of their 'home places'. Using a communitybased approach will ensure that the research and rehabilitation will be valuable and appropriate for all of the inhabitants of the watershed. Research for the project included a search of current literature and numerous Internet sites and the review of recommended resources for watershed studies. A survey of participants in similar projects was conducted on-line and in place at four schools and institutions. An outline for the proposed Mark Creek Watershed Research and Rehabilitation Project was developed based on the research and surveys.
