The event, organized by seventh grade biology teacher Carol Sevrey and Friends of the Fox, gave students a chance to gain hands-on experience and apply skills learned in the classroom. Students at the event measured the physical, chemical, and biological conditions at sites along the stream, with results aiding research by Friends of the Fox.
