OPS students explore Nells Dell

Recently the students from Omokoroa Point School ventured down the road to check out a small swampy area called “Nell’s Dell”. Students assessed the stream visually and recorded their findings: predominately a raupo infested swampy area, which has recently had a drain dug out around the perimeter. The students also tested the water temperature, pH, clarity and searched for invertebrates. Unsurprisingly the invertebrates they found were of the unhealthy variety. DSCF4785DSCF4782

We look forward to our next stream adventure where we can hopefully find a little more variety!
