Wayne State College students in Advanced Ecology. Biological Assessment class performed a biological assessment of South Logan
Creek for the City of Wayne. The goals of this Service-Learning
project were to edify students on the methods and interpretation of
biological assessment and to provide a report to the City of Wayne on
any possible impact from the city's wastewater effluent into South
Logan Creek. The results of the study indicated that the effluent
had little to no impact on the macroinvertebrate communities in South
Logan Creek. See pages 124-135 here to see a copy of the project.
The Bazile Creek Volunteer Stream Monitoring project.
Bazile Creek, in Northeast Nebraska, is a beautiful, sandy-bottom
stream that drains the hills lining the Missouri River. Local
residents expressed an interest in monitoring portions of the stream to
members of the Northeast Nebraska Resource Conservation and Development organization. A single sampling event took place in 2004. Click here for a report on the initial efforts of volunteer stream monitoring of Bazile Creek.
