HS Students Conduct Water Quality Study

 

Students conduct field stuidyMaple Hill and Averill Park High School students taking AP Environmental Science through Distance Learning worked together during a field trip to Schodack Town Park to complete a water quality study of Moordener Kill.

 

"The students collected and identified aquatic macroinvertebrates which can be used to assess water quality," said Teacher Len Bacon. "Special thanks to Maple Hill High School Teaching Assistant Leana O'Grady for helping to make the study possible. Prior to joining Schodack, Leana was an Environmental Educator for the Columbia County Soil and Water Conservation District. Leana's prior experience and connections with the Columbia County Soil and Water Conservation District created the opportunity for our students to participate in an authentic field experience."
