Kids in the Stream at Coweeta Aquatic Camp

Thanks to a partnership among the U.S. Forest Service, Macon County Schools, the University of Georgia, and the Coweeta Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) Program, 30 young people in rural North Carolina recently enjoyed a week-long summer camp that had them searching under rocks for crawdads and salamanders, making animated podcasts, and testing stream waters for phosphate, nitrogen, and dissolved oxygen.
