The water web we weave

Water is something that connects us all. We really can’t live without it and that’s why it’s so important. These two articles are examples of that water web and how important it is to all of us.

In the midwest recently, some local residents (or citizen scientist) collect data on the nearly 3,000 lakes around them to test them for water quality. The article is entitled, “Local Residents Chronicle Lake Water Quality” by Robin Blackstone, and can be found over at the Environmental News Network.

This other article, “Pubic Invited to Help Water Quality Monitoring of Dardenne Creek May 4” is by Dan Zarlenga from the Missouri Conservation Department and is an alert I received in my e-mail. I don’t know if the kids will be interested in going, but we’ll see. I think it would be fun but maybe we can find one closer to home this summer.
