The Amazing World of Macro -Invertebrates!

Twice a year the adolescents monitor the water quality of the Bonhomme Creek located on the Land Campus. On October 19th, we did the first of these monitors. There, we examined such things as the acidity of the creek, the clearness of the water, and the wide variety of (tiny) wildlife in this underwater habitat.  We are happy to report that our creek has received an excellent water quality rating. Levels are low but life is plentiful!

Thanks Bob, our local Missouri Stream Team expert, and MAP for joining us. We had a great day!
