Watershed and Ichthyology
Science enthusiasts! This week-long investigation will allow student scientists to understand better where our water comes from and how it is maintained. We will celebrate and explore watersheds that serve the San Francisco human and animal community. Our camp will have two primary focuses. One, ichthyology and how fish in the Bay and beyond live and experience harm—two, the water systems that benefit us. We will learn about the watersheds that service our area, test their quality, and learn about factors that keep them clean or pollute them. We will dissect a shark to see how its body is suited for life in water. We will be creating and decorating nature journals to record our observations about ecosystems found in our various aquatic communities. We’ll become an active and diligent water advocate. Showing we care, we will be participating in a beach cleanup and water monitoring as well!
This camp will hold two learning field trips. On these days, drop-off and pick-up will be in Crissy Field and the Presidio, as we avoid using MUNI.
