Charleston AFB Earth Day

Yesterday, the education department from the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest took samples of macroinvertebrates from the swamp and headed to the Charleston Air Force Base for the Earth Day celebration.  In 10-minute waves over two hours, 300 5th graders stopped by our tent and picked through the macroinvertebrate samples and learned how the organisms help us determine the quality of the water.
