Water Quality Stream Study:

The Natchez Trace Parkway is current looking for schools interested in collecting data from streams on the Parkway. Data would be also be shared with Adopt-a-Stream Mississippi. This is a service learning project, steeped in science. Fifth grade and above will experience water quality monitoring, including macro-invertebrate identification and chemical analysis, adjusted to grade level. This project is funded by the National Park Foundation. Please email Jane Farmer for more information.
