Envirothon Stream Study

On Friday, September 30, 2022 the BR Envirothon Club attended a training session at Salt Lick Creek, New Milford, PA.

The group gathered water samples in order to identify and analyze organisms found lurking in the local creek.

Envirothon is an environmental and natural resource conservation problem-solving, teambuilding and leadership experience and competition for high school students across the United States, Canada, and China, as described by the Envirothon website.

The group’s field trip is meant to help club members prepare for the state competition in May when they will compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas – Soils and Land UseAquatic EcologyForestryWildlife, and Environmental Issues.

Senior Tim Higgins is a first-time Envirothon member and says he was very intrigued with the study.

“It was cool learning about which macro organisms live in such a small creek.”

Another club member, senior Dalton Rutter, says, “I had lots of fun and learned a lot about organisms and some of the bigger minnows.”

Envirothon club members who attended the field training include James Barbour; Tim Higgins; Noah Martin; Jaycek Motyka; Zach Randall; Dalton Rutter; Griffin Whitehead, andadvisors Erin Brown and Shirley Motyka.
