Bayou Citizen Science  

The primary goal of the Bayou Citizen Science Program is to improve bayou water quality by training citizens to provide quantitative and qualitative information to inform the public and to support actions by the authorities who have jurisdiction to improve water quality.


Texas Stream Team 

Standard Core monitoring involves performing tests for parameters such as conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH, total depth, water and air temperature, and water transparency using a chemical Standard Core kit. In addition to these parameters, Bayou Citizen Scientists also conduct various field observations.

Going Over Data

Water Quality Data Sharing 

Inform the public, decision-makers, and funding partners, about water quality, by providing presentations, workshops, and/or reports about Bayou Preservation’s Citizen Science Program, the status of water quality in their watersheds, and other tools for citizen reporting of water quality conditions.

Bayou City Detective 

Are you an educator seeking ways for your classroom to get involved and learn more about their local watershed? 

Bayou Preservation's Bayou City Detective Kits are an informative and fun way to learn and keep an eye on the bayou. Our elementary age science kits come with all the necessary items needed to explore, test, and record the water quality at a bayou near you.

Not near a bayou? Our kits are versatile and can be used inside the classroom as well. Email to receive your class's hands-on instructions and classroom kits today!


Bayou Preservation seeks to pilot a water quality Eyes on the Bayou monitoring program. We are engaging volunteers who would be interested in reporting observations on their local waterways on topics such as water level, water quality, habitat, wildlife, pollution, etc.
