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
