Middle school students from Harwood Union Middle School in Moretown, Vermont participated in an engaging field day on October 24, 2018, with the help of CWDD members Janel Roberge and LeeAnn Trusela. Approximately 40 students were instructed how to make scientific observations that would indicate the health of Lozelle Brook, which ultimately flows into Lake Champlain. Students further investigated those observations using water and macroinvertebrate sampling techniques. These techniques included using a kick net and scrubbing rocks found in the streams.
