New study of Woodens Watershed now available

Students at NSCC examined samples from several areas in the Woodens River Watershed and examined the link between microplastics and macroinvertebrates (animals that lack a spine and can be seen with the naked eye, e.g. bugs).

Their study hypothesises that the more microplastics detected then the fewer will be the macroinvertebrates that are not of the heartiest sort.

Laura Struthers and Logan Hunter wrote the report and kindly gave us permission to put it up on our web site: SEDIMENT ANALYSIS OF THE WOODENS RIVER WATERSHED: Microplastic Pollution and Macroinvertebrate Health
