Stream Study

Time of Year: September/October, May/June

Full Day Program

Students will travel to our stream to investigate the living organisms found in our part of the Humber watershed at EFSC. The goal of this activity is to determine the health of the stream.  Students will be given a variety of tools to examine a number of indicators including biotic indexes, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and turbidity, and measurements will be taken at two different locations to allow students to compare their results and consider different variables.
