Students and teachers have participated in Student Watershed Watch Program sponsored by Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG) for the past 27 years on the first Wednesday of October. GLOBE Mission EARTH at The University of Toledo incorporated GLOBE protocols in this Citizen Science Project. Toledo Public Schools teachers, Laura Schetter (teacher at the Natural Science Technology Center) and Melody Tsapranis (teacher at Navarre Elementary School)  attended  the GLOBE Professional Development at the university last June.  This is just one example of how GLOBE can be incorporated into local citizen action projects.
