Tonganoxie High School students learning about electrofishing methods at Stranger Creek.

In conjunction with biological assessments of Stranger and Wolf Creeks in Leavenworth County, Kansas, we have helped to initiate a water quality monitoring program that is being conducted by students at Tonganoxie, Linwood-Basehor, and Pleasant Ridge High Schools.

We provide hands-on training sessions to these students in order to demonstrate the procedures that are used to measure various physical, biological, and chemical water quality variables. Click here to read more about the Wolf Creek assessment.
