Holy Spirit Catholic Regional School Enjoys Creek Kids

September 30, 2010

Sport Fish Restoration


Water simulates rain which triggers non-point source pollution on this EnviroScape model.
 
Students add Kool-Aid to simulate nutrients applied to the ground.

Thinking about our natural resources and man's affect on them is an important part of the Creek Kids program.

Alabama has more types of aquatic snails than any other state. Some types of Alabama snails are threatened or endangered.

Hands-on learning is an important part of Creek Kids.

Interaction with students facilitates learning.

Riffle minnows and Alabama darters were captured with a seine.  The Alabama darter is only found in Alabama.

Students help collect fish from the stream.
Alabama hog suckers are also found in this stream.

Preserved specimens are available to see some of the fish found in Tannehill's streams.  More types of fish are found in waters with good water quality and habitat.

Everyone has the opportunity to collect aquatic macroinvertebrates (bugs in the water).
