Challenge

Our goal this week is to understand how human activity can affect water quality and freshwater ecosystems in the Burlington area. We will investigate the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of two urban streams and compare the quality of the water and the health of the larger ecosystem based on these characteristics.
