Coal Creek Water Quality Testing with Hope Braithwaite, USU Watershed Scientist

Mar 19, 2022, 3:00 pm

Interested in the health of Coal Creek? So are we! We will be making a short journey to Coal Creek to investigate and understand our local fresh water quality. We will be using test kits (provided) to test for oxygen levels, macroinvertebrates, and more. It will be followed by a discussion of our results and what they indicate. All ages. Meet at the Museum and wear good shoes and dress for the weather.
