Streams of Western Oregon
This daylong field class will explore a stream near your home. It will go up the McKenzie River to the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, a world-renowned stream research site. Students will learn about the fish and aquatic insects that inhabit the stream, how climate and geology affect the stream, and how the "digestive system" of the stream works. Family friendly (ages 8+).
