Yellow jacket creek and chimicum creek
When we went to a camp called cispus with our school we went on a hike to yellow jacket creek so we took a little score sheet with types of bugs tolerant not so tolerant and intolerant to pollution so the more tolerant the less the score then in the end you add them all up and you get a bug score and the score for yellow jacket creek was 25 points chimicum creek was not as healthy as yellow jacket creek it was only 20 points well according to our period
The fish and wild life took a study called a Bibby and had to count every single bug in the creek are score didn't come out great but are creek goes through alot of different types of land like farm land that sprays pesticide and manour and it goes under a bridge and through towns so it has lots of types of pollution exposed to it. Thanks for reading.
