South Paulding Students Accepted as Presenters for Georgia Adopt A Stream’s Annual Confluence
Four students from Tema Hoskins, South Paulding High School Environmental Science program was recently chosen to present a poster at Upcoming Georgia Adopt a Stream’s annual “Confluence” conference. The students, Annabelle Renner, Melinda Downey, Destini Chambers, Lyric Portwood, and Montgomery Blake are presenting their project that investigated the disparity between the pH of the water and soil in the campus wetland and look at pH effects on plant health. The students are growing radishes in native soil from the swamp to determine the potential effects of pH alteration on crop growth. Their project was chosen from other student abstract submissions and they will be attending the annual conference to present to Adopt a Stream citizen scientists from across the state later this month.
