LEWISTON SCIENCE STUDENTS VISIT HOMESTEAD

 

Fourteen Lewiston eighth graders enrolled in Natural Resources and Science classes conducted a water quality field trip to the Homestead National Monument.  The Park Rangers worked with the junior high students on October 1st.

 

The group was fitted with water waders and conducted the data collection in Cub Creek.  Students then performed water lab tests at the Homestead’s education building.  Ranger Jesse Bolli, Resource Management Specialist, was the chief instructor.  The 8th graders tested and recorded information for turbidity, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, phosphorus, e-coli bacteria, potassium, stream flow rate and conductivity.

 

The students also learned about watersheds, urban pollution, sources of contamination and the history of the Homestead National Monument.  Mr. Tom Shirk, Homestead Volunteer, and Homestead interns Kari Reichert and Amy Michaletz helped with education centers.

 

Students attending were Dana Christen, Caleb Bredemeier, Chaz Wilgers, Courtnie Zyla, Sydney Rath, James Speckmann, Eion Speakman, Darian Zimmerman, Antony Gonzalez, Danny McMurray, Daniel Gonzalez, Skyler Black, Levi Meybrunn and Shaylyn Salts.

 

Mr. Devin Garcia, Lewiston Science Teacher and Mr. Dave Barnard, Ag Education Instructor sponsored the students.
