The students at Paradise Creek Regional High School in Moscow took advantage of their long periods and proximity to Paradise Creek to do a biological assessment of the stream on Monday. Over the past couple weeks, they have completed the other IDAH2O Stream Assessments, including physical/chemical and habitat. On Monday they found macroinvertebrates in the “middle water quality” group, such as damselfly and dragonfly nymphs. But they also found leeches and others that are very pollution tolerant. The most exciting part of the day was finding a turtle!
