Testing your creek
Is our creek healthy?
Is the restoration of the creek helping the flora and fauna?
What do we need to do to TAKE ACTION?
To help answer these and many other questions, Hilder Road State school was fortunate to create a partnership with Urban Utilities Queensland. The Year 5 and 6 students have and will continue to monitor the water quality of Fish Creek with Water Quality Scientists every month. The students work alongside the scientists to analyse the quality of the water and monitor the ecology of the creek. The students hope to gain some knowledge of both short term and long term trends and use this real-life information to take action to help their creek.
You can do it, too
Anyone or any group, including schools, community groups or individuals can follow our 5 steps and use the resources provided to check the health of their local creek and then decide how to take action. By assessing the health of YOUR creek, you can tailor what action is required for your area and therefore target it better.
