Freshwater Academy is a week-long camp that gives high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience and fieldwork in Northwestern Pennsylvania's waterways. Students spend their days studying biology and freshwater ecology at a level they can't achieve in the classroom. They will get wet, they will get dirty, and they will love it!

Today we went down stream in Woodcock Creek to test different water chemistry parameters. They were temperature, pH, dissolved solids, dissolved oxygen, nitrates, phosphates, alkalinity, and turbidity. the creek was really clear and cold. I had a lot of fun, I can't wait to go back tomorrow!
