As the Service Learning Coordinator for the OSU student group Hydrophiles, I've helped organize and run lessons on water and dam removal at several elementary schools in the Willamette Valley. I use visual aids and a scale model of the Glines Canyon Dam, complete with sediment and running water, which was removed from the Elwha River in 2014. I use the model to demonstrate how sediment moves in rivers, why sediment in rivers is important, and how sediment moves through dams. You can learn more about these efforts on the OSU Hydrophiles page.
