Here is what I will ask him:
- What influence does Reagan High School have on the water quality of the Fort Branch watershed?
- Do different creek segments have different environmental issues (upstream vs. downstream)?
- What can citizens do to help?
- Why was the creek black during that rainstorm? My guess? Tar from the roadside.
In the meantime, please have fun with this watershed-related activity. Make some seed balls. Planting native plants along creek beds (like the wildflowers in the seed balls) help prevent invasive species from settling here. Want free seeds? Apply within.
Helping the environment was never so pretty.
Here are some definitions for you to look up as homework. Hee.
