Winter Watershed Studies

Posted on: February 26th, 2015 by Leslie_Zucker

Two feet of snow and cold tem­per­a­tures haven’t stopped the Ben­nett School Water­shed Detec­tives from con­tin­u­ing their Ashokan Water­shed field stud­ies. Work­ing with our Water­shed Youth Edu­ca­tor, Matt Savat­gy, stu­dents have learned how to use snow­shoes as a help­ful tool for access­ing the snowy woods. Stu­dents have been busy col­lect­ing stream data and look­ing for evi­dence of how our local water­shed fau­na deal with win­ter con­di­tions. The chil­dren are eager to observe and mea­sure the impacts of the melt­ing snow pack as spring approaches.
