Austin High

Tim Ruzek of Cedar River Watershed District joins Austin High School students in one of the English Language Learner classes for a photo April 4, 2019, following his presentation on the local Cedar River watershed and drinking water supply. For two years, teacher Arik Andersen, who is an ELL instructor at Austin High, has invited Ruzek to give a few presentations each year to his classes; he also brings the students out to the Cedar River to conduct water-clarity testing and gain other natural-resources experiences.
