BPY Fifth Graders Explore The Meadowlands

BPY fifth grade scientists explored the Meadowlands estuary this week at the Meadowlands Environmental Center in Lyndhurst. With a view of New York City in the background, students used dip nets to capture samples of living organisms in the marsh and test water quality (salinity, dissolved oxygen and pH). They learned about how these organisms are specially adapted to a brackish environment. Students will now go back to the Van Saun Mill Brook to compare the ecosystems.
