  • We are on our last trip of the season and we have Whitefish High School from Montana joining our crew for 3 days! They are collecting water samples to study the relationship that nitrates, plankton and turbidity have in relation to the proximity to land. They will be taking their data back to classroom to create a GIS Story Map.
