This project involves sixth grade students participating in field experiences relating to the exploration of watersheds and ecosystems. Classes complete stream surveys at their designated site on Amazon Creek. Students map the physical characteristics of the stream, do an inventory of organisms and measure water quality twice yearly. They then compare their results with year’s past and other schools working on that site or a similar one. All data is recorded twice a year in our Amazon Creek Database.
