Seabury Middle School with Citizens for a Healthy Bay

On Thursday, we went to the site we’re adopting through Citizens For A Healthy Bay for the first time. The site has been in the process of being restored since 1996, and continues to get planted with more native plants every year. We’re going to be stewards of the site, which means that we’ll be monitoring for the health of the ecosystem and reporting to CHB monthly. The students also decided that they wanted to test the soil for arsenic, lead, cadmium and zinc as part of our study of the superfund site. So on Thursday, the students took soil samples from four different locations at the site which we’ll be testing in the next couple of weeks.
