Stream Ecology at Camp Wesley Woods
At Camp Wesley Woods, we are concerned about being good stewards of our natural resources. Since we are located near the headwaters of the huge Mississippi River watershed, our water resources are of special concern. We want to be sure that our little Capshaw Branch, which runs through the center of our camp grounds, is leaving our property in the cleanest condition possible. Each time a class participates in our stream ecology program, they are collecting scientific data to help us determine the health of our stream's ecosystem and monitor our impact on the watershed. You can review your class's data here, as well as compare your findings to those of other classes or other sites.
