This week's camp will be more research oriented than Freshwater Ecosystems, which is focused primarily on exploration. During this week students will keep a science journal to record data from water quality assessments on local creeks and lakes. They will document their discoveries of various creek organisms with field sketches and footnotes about observations, habitat, water temperature, and physical descriptions. We will visit county lakes to examine water quality and possible human impacts. Our water quality will focus on critical indicators such as pH, nitrogen (fertilizers), phosphates (detergents), dissolved oxygen, turbidity.
