East Syracuse Minoa - April 13, 2010

John Herrington with East Syracuse Minoa students

Teacher John Herrington, who has been involved with Project Watershed for many years, brings 17 students from his East Syracuse Minoa Environmental Education class to Limestone and Butternut Creeks for a full day of surveys.



East Syracuse Minoa students in stream


The creeks were monitored upstream from the ESM school (fast running water), and then monitored very near the school (near Oneida Lake and slow, deep water) to show how readings compare in the same stream - up and downstream.



Identifying Macroinvertebrates

 Students identify macroinvertebrates from the streams.

Four complete stream surveys were performed by the students.
