Fifth Grade Learns About Watersheds

Trinity’s 5th grade science class recently got a visit from ambassadors for Alabama Water Watch, a program dedicated to developing citizen volunteer monitoring of Alabama’ lakes, streams, and coasts. Mona Scruggs and Eric Reutebuch came out to demonstrate non-source point pollution, buffer zones, and best practices for protecting watersheds while engaging in farming, development, and just living on planet earth.  The presentation was excellent and a good supplement to the 5th graders’ study of watersheds. While they were at Trinity, Ms. Scruggs and Mr. Reutebuch also visited Trinity’s “Rainwater from Rooftops” catchment system, which collects non-potable water for watering plants and flushing toilets at the school.
