The award-winning Arcade Creek Project is an ongoing study of the riparian corridor of the Arcade Creek, an urban watershed in Sacramento, California. It consists of eleven studies which measure the health of the Arcade Creek in various ways and is run entirely by students of Mira Loma High School and their six science instructors.
To learn more about each individual study and view collected data, visit the Studies page.
The Arcade Creek Project began eleven years ago to fulfill a curriculum requirement of the International Baccalaureate Program. Students coordinate a school-wide field project within the local community that combines the different science courses offered at Mira Loma. IB Science students study the nearby Arcade Creek, a beautiful neighborhood waterway that runs year-round. Over the years, the project has garnered numerous awards and inspired similar studies world-wide. For a more detailed description of the project, visit the About Us page
