ESS 220 Class Adopts Stretch of Third Creek



The two sections of Joanne Logan's Waters and Civilizations class (ESS 220) have officially adopted the stretch of Third Creek that runs along the "Rugby" filed across from the Robertshaw property. We had our first Third Creek Cleanup and Assessment on Nov 16, 2012, with more than 20 students participating. We collected over one ton of trash from this 1/4 mile section of creek. Several groups conducted a visual assessment, but unfortunately this stretch is rated as poor mostly due to the poor channel condition and lack of riparian zone.
