Although we did test the pH of this water a few months back (see link) and it was fine, the pond is quite gross. It is near soccer fields and I guess their trash blows everywhere. Also, people bring bread to feed the ducks and nutria (let's all feed the invasive species!) and then leave the bread bags on the ground. Ugggh! The kids picked up trash but something needs to be done about the scum on top of the water near the shore...
Taven really wanted to touch the turtle in this next pic. He didn't.
Checking out a dead fish. I think I might make this little pond a future Rainbow Warriors deep clean-up project. I think we could do some more water quality tests and definitely clean it up more. I attended a Project Wild training through Texas Parks and Wildlife a few years back when I was working for the library. I still have the resources and I think they could be of great use in our effort.
Mirek waiting for help.
Naia to the rescue!
Fun at the park.
