We spent Thursday on a trip out to the Haw River, west of Chapel Hill. We were able to do a macroinvertebrate study just below a dam to investigate what was living in the river, and what we could learn about stream health.

In the afternoon we canoed out onto the lake just above the dam, observing human impact on river banks, accumulation of trash and just enjoying the beauty of the river!

Enjoy these shots of our young scientists checking out the river’s biodiversity!
