The Outdoor Track did water-quality testing with Kaniksu Land Trust today. We first tested water in the science lab, learned about the importance of clean water, and then headed into the field.  We visited 3 sites: Trestle Creek, Trout Creek, and the Pack River where we assessed Physical and Chemical properties of the water Habitat features of the streams, and performed a Biological assessment.  

Why is Mrs. Haag blurry?  Bad camera? 
Or is it that she is just always moving so fast, she's a blur?
