Grade 7 Students Conduct Ecological Survey of Bauer Park

On May 11 Grade 7 students headed to Bauer Park to meet with Assistant Town Engineer Rob Russo. This is the third year that Mr. Russo has met with Grade 7 students as part of their ecology unit. Students learned about his educational background and what he does to protect Madison from water pollution. Students then conducted an ecological survey of Bauer Park and return to collect water samples for testing. Sampling includes testing for nitrates, phosphates, turbidity, pH, and temperature.
