This week honors ecology students traveled to McAdoo Creek.  We met with Dr. Michelle Rogers and Kathy Dewein from APSU to learn about using benthic macro invertebrates to determine water quality.  Students sampled from riffles, root patches and pooled areas looking for crayfish, larvae of stoneflies and mayflies, gilled snails, and other specimens. Our data was compiled by Dr. Rogers who was able to make the determination that our region of the creek was not polluted.
