Over the past school year, students in Kenai Peninsula schools have been monitoring streams near their classrooms. They have taken monthly measurements of temperature, turbidity, pH, conductivity and oxygen levels, recorded the local aquatic insects and sampled fish populations that utilize the creek. Along with all of this fieldwork, students have been studying different aspects of watersheds through monthly classroom presentations and activities led by the Kenai Watershed Forum and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
