Getting wet on National Forests is enjoyed by millions of people through aquatic recreation, yet few opportunities match the learning experience of full immersion, freshwater snorkeling in the clear streams of a healthy watershed.  Take a dip into the Forest Service-North Bay partnership to find out where freshwater snorkeling programs are developing and currently underway, explore how we engage visitors in water stewardship, and learn how to set up and run a snorkeling program as a tool for learning. It’s all about having fun and enjoying our waters with partners – join us or start your own program!
