Water quality in local streams

The Problem

Students often aren\'t aware of where the trash they throw on the ground goes, and how it impacts local water sources. We have taken field trips in the past to the LA River to collect trash and turn it into art work. But we realized that many students didn\'t know that the water in our local area ended up in the river.

Our Plan

We will create events to teach students about water quality and the LA River system. First, we will have students create maps of where they think water and trash will end up. Then we will provide samples for students to test. Ideally, we will be able to take students on field trips to gather water quality samples as well!
