Every spring and fall, the Portland Water Bureau’s Education program takes students on field trips to the Bull Run Watershed.
During a typical field trip, students test turbidity, learn how the forest protects the water, and tour the inside of Dam 1. Enjoy these highlights from thank you notes students sent after the fall 2014 field trip season!
It must have been raining while they were conducting turbidity tests—very common in the Bull Run.
This student felt compelled to write a thank you note after hearing all the cool stuff s/he missed.
Once is not enough for Jack!
