The River Stewards were in the classroom once again on Tuesday, February 23rd. This week's lesson was macro-invertebrates and hypoxia. Students discovered and identified macro-invertebrates found in our region. All of the samples were intolerant of pollution and helped students arrive to the conclusion of our river's healthy state. A majority of the students believed our rivers were not very healthy and were highly polluted, prior to the lesson. The student's also learned about hypoxia and their impact on water quality on a much larger scale.
