Save the Bay is an amazing organization dedicated to improving water quality, reducing pollution, and creating more land for animals. The field trip sponsored by the organization paved the way for the knowledge of new scientific information such as biodiversity for Simpson’s Biodiversity index, the new information regarding native plants, and the knowledge that although plants may look dead, they can still be alive because their roots transport nutrients. The field trip can relate to what we learned in class because it introduced us to the scientific method- using experimentation to analyze and observe data and make conclusions. The trip also emphasized the use of energy and water importance which we have learned in class such as water’s polarity or high heat of vaporization. An amazing experience of the field trip would be to eat lunch out by the bay and interact with others on what you have observed. Also, the service trip makes you feel like you made a great impact in saving the bay and allows you to branch out the experience to others so more people can join and make a difference. The field trips are very worthwhile and give students the chance to do hands on work to make a difference in the bay.
