Field Studies Trip to San Pedro River

Students in the Field Studies classes are rounding out their unit on the connection between the presence and types of macro invertebrates and water quality by visiting several areas and actually collecting samples and data. The sites included the school’s koi pond, the Sweetwater Wetlands, and the San Pedro River. Students gathered samples and tested water quality at each location, then compared their findings on macro invertebrates and water quality with each site, looking for any possible conclusions that they could draw from their data.
