1. Infiltration Arroyo Walk: Test the infiltration rates of different soil types in the arroyo.

2. Water Table Experiment: Build a water table model to explore how water moves through underground geological features.

3. Hydrological Maps of the Santa Fe Region: Explore maps that explain the way that water moves through rock formations underground.

4. Plant Roots, Soil, and Ground Water: Use the arroyo model from Unit 1 to investigate how plant roots can impact erosion and infiltration.

5. Increasing Infiltration and Slowing Runoff Arroyo Walk: Have students look for evidence of infiltration and plant seeds to help increase the number of native plants growing in the arroyo.
