  1. During the field trip, the most valuable part was definitely learning about the water quality. All the classes were well set up and I loved it!

  2. Totally Awesome. Want to do it again next year. I loved the tests on the water and the nature hike to core trees. my favorite part was collecting bugs from the water and fish. Love loved this trip.

  3. I love science. I have learned so much from our field trip. I learned a lot of things about water. I have learned how the different acidic levels of water affect the insect inside that water. Water quality impacts our community, because we drink water from our community almost everyday. The water affects our health.

  4. I thought that this field trip was a great experience. I learned a lot and all of the volunteers were awesome!Being able to go and do the tests helped me understand what is involved in checking water quality. I thought thsi was much better to learn hands on than to see the same information on a screen.
