How do studies work?
Tests water quality with Ceriodaphnia dubia.
Monitors populations of macroscopic invertebrates.
Catalogs and tracks populations of native and invasive plant species.
Monitors the chemical content and conditions of the creek.
Measures physical features, like water depth and vegetation density, to assess general creek health.
Tracks the yearly shape and flow of the creek, and provides geographical references for other studies.
Educates the public about the creek and environmental issues, and writes grants to keep the project funded.
Works with other studies to pinpoint invasive species, toxins, and pollution, and fix these problems to improve creek health.
Monitors the composition of creek soil, and it's effect on creek life.
Maintains the various digital arms of the creek, and creates training videos for the studies.
Monitors the population of birds and other vertebrate species.
