How did it go?
We explored our local river as part of World Water Monitoring Day. We took a water sample and performed various tests including dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, and turbidity. We also sampled for benthic macro-invertebrates which was quite exciting. By looking at the results of the water tests and the creatures we found, we were able to discuss the health of the river at our sample location and talk about things that influence the river's health.
