student releases fish at Riverwood

April 21, 2023-- Intermediate South and High School East students came together in the name of science.

Specifically, trout release day, which took place yesterday at Riverwood Park. The event was the culmination of a collaborative project among Intermediate South students and Jon Hoffman’s environmental science students at HSE. Middle school students learned the importance of dissolved oxygen in aquatic life as they helped HSE students titrate the dissolved oxygen levels of the water.

After the release, there was even time for students to enjoy everything else the park has to offer.

Important to note: “All of the fish swam away, and as far as we know are living their best life in the water,” according to Intermediate South teacher Susan George-Horn. Sounds like a win, win, swim.
