AIS students head to Mill Creek

June 19, 2014
The Town Crier

Fifth grade students at Austintown Intermediate School visited Mill Creek MetroParks in May to make science come alive.

The students were studying pollution in the environment and the effect it has on organisms living in streams. Students investigated the Bears Den Stream and found crayfish, salamanders, mayfly larvae and caddisfly larvae, which lead the students to believe that the stream was not polluted.

The students also toured Lanterman's Mill to learn about the mills history.
