Berkshire 6th Grade Students Become Stream Team Detectives with Geauga SWCD!

After taking a year hiatus due to Covid-19, the Berkshire Badgers Adjusted to Bring  Back their Annual 6th Grade Camp Experience! Students became Stream Team  Detectives with Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District in a Chagrin River tributary at Camp Hiram House. By searching for aquatic critters living in the stream,  students were able to assess the health and water quality of the stream.
