Kaua’i High School Science Classes Test Niumalu Waters

On November 20, the Kaua’i HS Science Classes taught by Paul Crowe, came down to check out the waters around our Niumalu/Pu’ali project site and practice some real world care of the environment. They were joined by Mālama Hulē‘ia’s Dr. Carl Berg, who summarized the activity for us:

Today 21 Kauai High students in Paul Crowe’s science classes showed up
at Niumalu. We spent 2 hours taking water samples all around the Puali
estuary, then measuring temp., salinity, turbidity, nitrate, phosphate,
pH, and bacteria concentrations. After lunch break, they worked for an
hour hauling logs, branches, roots and filling a container that the
County had dropped off.

The results?  Here are some of the data collected by the students, as shared by Paul Crowe:

Mahalo to the Kaua’i  HS science students and all who helped to make this a real learning experience.
