St. Maries Honors Biology students embarked on their first outdoor science adventure at a site on Benewah Creek which had been restored by the CDA tribe. This trip was a huge collaborative effort involving many members of the CDA Tribe, IDAH2O, the University of Idaho, and the Lands Council. Students got a chance to hear about the history of the land, visit restored and unrestored sites, electroshock and dissect fish, measure water quality and view wildlife, and hear about the culture and history of the CDA tribe. It was an action-packed day from start to finish.
The students formed hypotheses and are now analyzing data and drawing conclusions. You can see the data they collected on IDAH2O’s database page.
A special thanks to the CDA Tribe for all of their help!
Pictures to come!
