In this year’s Watershed Report Card investigation, 5,000 county high school students waded in eight streams to count hundreds of macroinvertebrates and grade our waterways’ health. Conservancy staff and volunteers worked more than 400 hours to support them. And–drumroll please–students found their first American eel in the Patapsco River. Eels, shad and herring now migrate easier because the Bloede Dam was blasted off the river in 2019. Watch for report card results in April.
