Daily Republic: Fairfield High science classes gets hands dirty to monitor creeks

FAIRFIELD — It’s one thing to be lectured to about environmental sciences. It’s another to throw on galoshes and trudge through a creek.

“It’s a field trip, to an actual field,” declared Jill Bolduc, Fairfield High’s environmental science teacher. “It’s a true lab class. We’re able to step it up a notch.”

Bolduc’s class of seniors and juniors spent Friday in Union Avenue Creek, collecting physical, chemical and biological samples of the organisms in and around the waterway. There were also lessons about how the plants, dirt and rocks of the creek affect the water quality.
