The day before Spring Break, Mrs. Shauna Miller’s Environmental Science students began calculating a water index score for the creek near Primacy Parkway. Some results were immediate, some will be developed over the next few days. The water in our creek comes from neighborhood surface runoff, so Miller anticipates a poor score.
Later this spring, the students will create a biodiversity index of the benthic macroorganisms (primarily insect larva) in the creek. Here are a few moments from this week’s lab.
