Campers got to sail on the dory boat Potomac for a full day of exploring the center channel of the river. There was water quality testing, trawling for fish and pulling a plankton
tow. Animals such as white perch, snails, and catfish filled their nets together with an abundance of different river grasses. The river was full of life, despite a severe drought! Campers
logged all water quality information, and entered it into their journals and the lab computer back at the seaport center. .
