Bike With Your Boots On – 6/23/2018

Bike With Your Boots On is a a citizen science initiative with the Missouri Stream Team to get people out exercising and testing local creeks. For this outing, we met at Fults Field near River Des Peres and split into groups to cover the most ground. At each site we tested for things like conductivity (how much salt in in the water) and the PH of the water. Other science thing were measured that I can’t remember. These values are sent to Jefferson City where they will be added to a database keeping track of the health of local creeks.  Here are some of the photos of our event.

Operation Clean Stream – 8/26/2017

Danelle and I normally participate in Race For The Rivers each year. This year, we made a prior commitment that happened on the same day, Operation Clean Stream. We took a canoe and paddled down the Meramec River from Greentree to George Winter park, picking up trash along the way.

As you can see from the photos, we had a fantastic time. Actually, its hard to have a bad time when you’re on the river. Maybe next year we’ll race again.
