Kenston Students will observe the wetlands located by the stream on Kenston's campus. Students will use the ORAM Field Form to classify the wetlands into one of three classes. The ORAM Field form consists of six methods in which the students evaluate the quality of the wetlands by studying the soils, vegetation, and aquatic life. The student's classification of the wetlands at Kenston will provide Kenston with an estimate of how well the new drainage system is working. The evaluation of wetlands will determine future building projects at Kenston High School as well as determine the quality of the campus.
