Camp 2009 was condensed into 3 full days in July. Students learned about macroinvertebrates, and other aquatic organisms that indicate a healthy stream. They also participated in discussions about what a watershed really is and how it functions. Lots of hiking, swimming, and fun! 2009 camp was sponsored by NFWA and the Jefferson County Conservation District.
