Twenty-five students from the AP environmental science class at Spotsylvania High School explored the James River in Hopewell, Va., on Monday September 26, 2016.

The class’ teacher, Ms. Meredith Lohr said that she thinks it is important for students to study the Chesapeake Bay watershed because everyone should see how human activity on land affects the water.  According to Lohr, the water quality is at a pretty good level right now.

The students saw Blue Crabs, a Juvenile Bald Eagle, a Paragon Falcon, Blue Catfish, and Hogchoker. They also learned how the ecosystem works at the river.  Mrs. Lohr said that the field trip provided the opportunity for students to learn a lot about the James River while having fun.
