Join other scouts for an investigation into the health of the Bushkill Creek Watershed. We will learn about the primary pollutants, the types of land use that cause them, and conservation efforts to prevent them. We'll learn how to test the chemical properties of the creek water to look for pollutants and healthy oxygen levels. We will also measure and calculate the flow rate and learn about the impact this has on erosion and water supply. This program is best for scouts ages 13 and up. Scouts may participate in both the morning and afternoon sessions. The afternoon session is more appropriate for younger scouts. Older scouts who participate in both can receive service hours for helping younger scouts during the afternoon program. Registration is required. Scouts must register individually, not as a troop.
