Homeschool STEM Class & Meet-up: Ecosystems - River Ecology

Come and meet your fellow homeschoolers and learn about River Ecosystems. Using water samples from a local river source, students assess water quality and discuss the negative effect of various environmental factors on the river. Students learn about the plants and animals that make up a river environment and their interdependence.
