Leaf Pack Experiment Takes Learning Into the Field

This video highlights the partnership between Stroud Water Research Center, Riverkeeper, and Hudson Basin River Watch in the early 2000s. The Leaf Pack experiment involves creating an artificial leaf pack, placing it in the stream for three to four weeks, examining the packs in the classroom and discovering different types of aquatic insects that are used as indicators of stream health.
