So, yesterday we as a class took a trip down to the Berman Creekside Park so that we could analyze the water in Paradise Creek. We walked down to the transect by the park and got all of our materials ready, figured out who was getting wet, and got to it. We followed the same procedure as we did last year, getting in the water to analyze the creek floor and its sedimentary contents. Using other strategies and tools, we were given the task of examining rocks, plant life, insects, water temperature, and viscosity in the stream. Using all of this information, it helps to provide a better understanding of the state of our water quality.
