Twice a year, the students meet with our Stream Team Volunteer Bob Virag to monitor a section of the Bonhomme Creek which is located on the CMS Land Campus. We run multiple tests on the creek in order to determine the quality of the water. Today, our creek received a good score. Two thumbs up. We were down a few crane fly larvae and leeches but overall, the creek is healthy and flowing with life. Bob even said our creek “is one of the nicest creeks in the county. It’s like being in the Ozarks.” Thanks, Bob! We love working with you to improve the quality of our Missouri waters!
Congratulations to Kaylee for receiving Best in Show at the CMS Iris Show! And Thank you to Erin Chien and Jean Morris who led the design workshop for our students and coordinated the show. This year was our largest group of student participants and many families and community members joined us. Here are a few photos from the event:
