Annawamscutt Creek Macroinvertibrate Study

St Luke's School of Barrington, in partnership with the Barrington Land Conservation Trust, will conduct a stream study of macroinvertebrates in Annawamscutt Creek. Originating in Riverside, Annawamscutt Creek is an urban stream that travels through Riverside and Barrington before it empties into Allin's Cove of Narragansett Bay.

In the classroom, students will analyze their data and prepare a field report of their stream study for use by and presentation before the Barrington Land Conservation Trust. This initial study is intended to inform and encourage corrective action to protect the Annawamscutt Creek and watershed area.
