Community School Spring Monitoring
Two classes of reliable citizen scientists from the Forest Grove Community School recently completed their Spring round of creek health monitoring. The trip had the added twist of exploring the questions of “how are the main creek and the Cabin Creek tributary the same and how are they different?”. Applying skills, knowledge, and habits developed over the past months and years, the large group worked hard and efficiently – both in the forest and on their return to the classroom – to gather the data and analyze it into the form of useful, new knowledge. Their results may be viewed at: http://www.stroudcenter.org/lpn/projectsView.asp?Group=300
Perhaps they will send along a summary to be added to this post?
The group took a successful “test walk” on the new, student built “For the Birds” trail and enjoyed lunch up by the Big Snag.
