Allapattah Flats helping restoration of the Indian River Lagoon

7th grade students at Allapattah Flats K-8 have been given the opportunity to participate in an Indian River Lagoon restoration project through 4H.  Students have been studying the effects of runoff water on the lagoon and have learned about various biological controls such as oyster beds.  Students attended a field trip in which they were able to participate in four stations that each taught them an important part of Indian River Lagoon preservation.  The first station allowed them to observe specimens of the various types of sea life present in the lagoon.  In the next they completed a data collection experiment in which they compared two different methods of collecting underwater data.  During the third they compared the salinity levels along 2 different points in the lagoon.  Lastly they assisted scientist in filling bags with empty oyster shells to use on their next trip to the lagoon in order to build their oyster beds.
