EastBayRI.com: Westport [Massachusetts] High School students in Dan Harrington’s Environmental Science class spent this fall in the field exploring Angeline and Kirby Brooks in Westport in partnership with the Westport River Watershed Alliance.
Through the Adopt-A-Watershed Program, which began in 1995, students discover the world of stream ecology and gain first-hand experience working on an ongoing scientific study. This fall, the students collected data on water chemistry, recorded physical characteristics of the streams, and collected aquatic life in order to measure the water quality in the streams.
