COMMENTSStudents were interested seeing a cattail stalk that was found along the driftline. We were wondering where it came from. ~20 NKN Middle School students participated in the monitoring/clean up - only 1 SOLV-size bag of debris (mostly plastic bottles) collected, some with oriental writing. Most students participated in the nature hike + estuary science activities following the monitoring.
