Grade 10 Environmental Science class - nice weather for ducks (and duck weed)

On Friday 23rd August Ajarn Simon and his intrepid Grade 10 Environmental Science class braved the rain to begin a study of how fast the invasive species ‘duck weed’ propagates. The site of the study was a stretch of water near the chicken coop in the Three Generation Farm. Using quadrats (a square form used to select an area for study) and leaving 10 duck weed plants inside each, the class will be able to return and then calculate the rate at which it is spreading. Despite the persistent rain the Grade 10 students remained in good humour, and worked as effective teams to complete the task.
