Students' Fieldwork Helps the Environment

Students in AP Environmental Science complete diversity survey and water quality assessment work for the Santa Monica Mountains Resource Conservation District

On Oct. 3, high school AP Environmental Science students headed to Malibu Lagoon to complete a diversity survey and water quality assessment for the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains (RCDSMM). Each year, the RCDSMM relies heavily on community volunteers to collect data related to overall lagoon health and functioning.

The Malibu Lagoon is an important wetland and had been listed as an “impaired body of water” by the Environmental Protection Agency for many years. Several conservancies and agencies joined together to improve water quality and restore wildlife habitats. In 2013, contaminated soil was removed, construction was completed to reshape the channels to improve water circulation, and native vegetation was planted. Since then, Campbell Hall students have been involved in helping to collect data that is included in long-term monitoring reports sent to the state. This volunteer effort is an ideal way for students to connect service learning with the curriculum, putting the knowledge and skills they acquired in the classroom to the best use possible - helping the environment.
