Forest Grove Participates in Lagoon Field Study

On Saturday, October 24th, current and former Forest Grove MOA Prep students participated in a critical field study to monitor the various aspects of the Indian River Lagoon. Due to the current pandemic, this study could not be done en mass as usual but instead in smaller sections on the weekend. These pictures highlight our Bulldogs (both former and current students as well as teachers) and their adventures throughout the day! Students were tasked with measuring tides, checking salinity, and analyzing chemical parameters in our lagoon. While safety was of utmost priority, our students were able to successfully obtain all of the necessary data to support the daily work done by the Oceanographic Research & Conservation Association (ORCA). A special Thank You to Mrs. Brick, Mr. Morales, and Ms. Sanders for making this important event a reality for our students!
