Our second Living Lab trip of the summer was June 13. We went to a restored section of Bowker Creek next to Oak Bay High and learned about water testing, stream restoration, and biodiversity sampling. We gathered samples and identified organisms with the help of microscopes.
This was our first Living Lab trip of the summer. We visited Willows Beach to learn about water testing, the intertidal zone, and the connection between stream and ocean. We were also introduced to some of the history and cultural significance of the area by Songhees knowledge holders.
