Whether it was participating in their musical or going to a Christian camp in the White Mountains. My early life was heavily influenced by Christianity in many ways. But it all came crashing down when I left my church. Our favorite minister had retired and no one in my family felt the need to get up every Sunday morning and go to church.

I remember waking up on Sunday mornings to the smell of breakfast waiting for me in the kitchen. My mom wasn’t the best cook, but she did her best with what we had. Sunday mornings were special because she had the time to make big breakfasts. My personal favorite meal was pancakes. I would watch cartoons as my brother and I chowed down our breakfast. Every Sunday was a carbon copy of the one before. We would drive to the church in our green mini-van and park in the back parking lot behind the bank. We would walk through the front entrance of the church and be greeted by two volunteers at the door. We would climb the stairs and when we would reach the top, more volunteers would give us programs that told us the schedule for the service. My family would walk to the front of the room and sit in the pews closest to the minister. I would then be…

    Our task was to figure out a way to stop, or decrease, a certain situation that is affecting the water quality of a particular body of water in our neighborhood. The body of water that we will be focusing on today, will be the Foxstone Creek in Vienna Virginia. Although there are many different problems that have occurred in this creek, the problem that we noticed that is the most impactful, is the amount of erosion on the creek.

    This laboratory experiment was conducted in Greenfield Station Genesee Creek River to determine the environment’s effect on the amount of diverse biological communities in a lotic river. Shredders are macroinvertebrates that feed on coarse particle organic material (CPOM). Macroinvertebrates usually stay in the same habitat and do not migrate, which may be due to them being trapped or frequently receiving a good source of food. They are also an essential part of the freshwater ecosystem by…

    The Meramec River is located in the upper Ozark Highlands in central-eastern Missouri and spans 218 linear miles before discharging into the Mississippi River in St. Louis (Blanc 1999, Thom et al, Figure 1). This watershed is dominated by Oak-Hickory forests and karst topography; and the Meramec River follows a riffle-run pattern of stream flow (Blanc 1999, Thom et al). Before people dominated the landscape, the driving forces of nature shaped the topography and the subsequent ecosystems that…

    southeast it seems apparent that most of the drainage channels would run between the depressions. An example of this would be the watershed that leads into Ives Cove. It passes underneath a trail, through a wetland area, and into a pond near the coast. The drainage channel is fed from two drumlins on both sides and a gully located above the wetland. Current developments near the shoreline seem to influence the stream direction, perhaps damaging the pond below.…

    The vibrant colors of magenta and orange filled the body of water by the drop, as it oozed from the rancid, corroded drainage system (Kang 30). The mixing of acidic chemicals created these colors, and produced nasty, murky water. Kang states, “When oil spills occur, the water is coated with a greasy sheen, and ugly, yellow bubbles seem to blister its surface” (30). When looking at photographs of the Yellow River, the waterway is a brownish-red tint, and looks like humans tossed dead carcasses…

    Introduction: Urban areas contribute pollutants that wash off of areas that are not native to the area (Sanders, et. Al. 2001). These pollutants caused by urban areas contribute the deterioration of water quality in stream and runs which make up a significant part of the bodies of water in the state of Ohio. Water quality is crucial for the fish and macroinvertebrates species that can sustain a community in that specific body of water, any change in this quality can change the entire diversity…
