Today the 1st half of the 7th grade braved the cold, wind, and rain to spend the day on Cayuga Lake and Salmon creek doing water studies. We spent 1/2 of the day collecting aquatic macroinvertebrates and studying the chemistry of Salmon creek. On the Floating Classroom we went through four stations to study the chemistry of the lake and we also looked at microscopic phyto and zooplankton that we caught. Tomorrow the second 1/2 of the 7th grade will go...hopefully with warmer weather.
