On Friday, September 3, I participated in a short workshop about “Adopt a Stream.”
[From the Adopt a Stream website, http://www.adopt-a-stream.org/ “This workshop is designed to teach you about basic stream water chemistry (some aspects of larger water bodies will also be included). The chemical tests are collected with hand-held field equipment. Accuracy and precision of collecting field data will be discussed. We ask that you conduct at least the following parameters: pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, turbidity, and temperature.”]
How could our school become involved in Adopt a Stream with Nancy Creek? How could Synergy 8 play a role in studying the creek and improving the quality of this natural resource?
Also, a related way to get involved…an essay contest on the Georgia Clean Water Campaign

I too am a a student from St. Mary's in Mr. McCalla's Honors Algebra 2 class. I also think that getting students involved in the "Adopt a Stream" campaign would be very beneficial. Not only would students get the opportunity to be involved with conserving our natural resources and making a difference within the community, but students would also be educated about the environment and maintaining a healthy environment. I think that it would be really effective to get students involved!
I am a student at St. Mary's in Mr. McCalla's Honors Algebra 2 class. I think that is a really great idea! I think it could improve the quality of natural resources because if more people are more aware as a whole. We may also help to purify water by learning more about the chemicals. Most importantly, individuals would want to clean up the environment if they really knew how garbage affects water.
