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.
When I wrote the article piece about the quarry pump failing for 19 days, I remembered thinking what a disaster the high school environmental PTI lab at Phillips MillI was going to be.
I was thinking in the back my mind…. the leaf pack may save the day… but I didn’t really believe it until I saw our number 27 PTI 🙂
I was just talking to the teachers and trying to figure out how to get a significant number of kids out of virtual school and into getting mud on their 🥾. Thank you for all your support.
