Class takes Whitehall students to the White River

WHITEHALL, Mich.—Environmental groups tracking the state of West Michigan’s natural watershed are getting some help from Whitehall Middle School students.

On November 14, teacher Susan Tate and 150 eighth grade students tested the water quality of the White River and five of its tributaries.  The groups visited Coon Creek by Montague’s Municipal Boat Launch, Bush Creek near the bike trail overpass, Buttermilk Creek by Twisters, Covell Park and Mill Pond Creek by Lyons Den, and Wildcat Creek on South Shore Drive.

The tests are part of the students’ Earth science course.  The students plan to share their results with community partners such as the White Lake PAC and the Muskegon Conservation District.
