Posted on 10/26/2022
On October 13th, KFHS Oceanography students went to Little Island Park in Virginia Beach.  Students participated in a 'meaningful watershed experience' in which they rotated through six stations that included:  1) Taking a seine net in the water to collect animal samples; 2) Measure the change in the beach elevation to create a profile of the beach; 3) Analyze sand samples from different parts of the beach; 4) observe density and changes in vegetation in the beach environment; 5) Record wave and weather measurements; and 6) Study the water quality.
