Arundel Middle students to conduct water study

Students at Arundel Middle School and the county Department of Recreation and Parks will help design an environmental education program at the Odenton Natural Area.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust, which collects money from bay license plate sales and the income tax check-off, has given the county a $3,200 grant to develop six nature trails with work stations, to construct owl and bat boxes and to conduct an archaeological dig.

In the year-long project, students will conduct a water quality study on Towers Branch, which runs through the 100-acre park.

Christine Coffin, spokeswoman for the Department of Recreation and Parks, said the project also should produce a student-teacher workbook, including environmental lessons in math, science, English and industrial arts.

Students will begin working on the trails Saturday.
