What is WOWW?
W.O.W.W. is the acronym for the Watching Our Watersheds & Wildlife Project that brings interactive learning kiosks and educational tools to introduce visitors and students to the concepts of watersheds, wildlife corridors, wildlife and plant identification, historical ecology, climate change, and the effects of pollution on the San Francisco Bay. This project will use the latest technologies to provide visitors the opportunity to “fly” their way through the Google Earth Alameda and Santa Clara County watershed maps when their zip code is typed in. They will see which creeks go by their houses or schools, observe valley historical ecology, or have the option to take an automated fly-through tour of the watershed.
This project will include two permanent touch-screen computers on the refuge, one at the Visitor Center in Fremont and one at the Environmental Education Center in Alviso. In addition, the fun, engaging learning modules can be uploaded from the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society’s website for in-classroom and public use! The kiosks and the programs available for download are expected to be in place by the end of this year.
