Thank you David for describing the linkages of our streams to our natural world through the lives of aquatic wildlife, and how we are dependent on their ‘activities of daily living’ to have a stream that is a […]
It has taken centuries for our U.S. society to begin to acknowledge that we have missed out on critical knowledge and experience living within a human monoculture of ideas and beliefs. Thank you Jacqline for your […]

Thank you Carol for the excellent article about Pete, his story and his meritorious efforts.

Thanks, Francis, for sharing this information! You mentioned that the high school students at the Solebury School perform macroinvertebrate/pollution tolerance index testing. Do you know if they are doing leaf pack projects? Macroinvertebrate data collected by Leaf Pack Network (https://leafpacknetwork.org) groups can now be entered in the Monitor My Watershed data portal. That would be a nice addition to your EnviroDIY Monitoring Station real-time data.
Goody goody goody!
This information will get Jeremy Pfancook and Phyllis Arnold ,2 environmental teachers, excited.
Our two schools are definitely ready to join the leaf pack network.
