Flint Creek River Monitoring at Pederson Preserve
July 13, 2015|
On July 9th, a group of Barrington High School students assisted Barrington Area Conservation Trust as part of the Riverwatch Monitoring Program within the BACT/BHS Conservation Leadership Project. A monitoring site was selected on Flint Creek at Pederson Preserve. Students recorded the stream’s physical characteristics and collected biological macro invertebrate samples (small stream organisms) which are bio-indicators of water quality.
