This stream ecology curriculum is intended for grades 6-12 and
draws connections between aquatic life, water quality, and the
way we live in our watersheds. Understanding their connection to
the intricate web of life empowers students to join community
efforts to protect water and habitat where they live.
For 2 billion years, bacteria were the only creatures on Earth.
Long before the dinosaurs, a special type of bacteria slowly
increased the level of oxygen in the Earth’s air to 20 percent.
Without this oxygen other plants and animals could not have
evolved, including us.
