Kathleen Wright Studies Macroinvertebrates in Alaska Streams
28 June - 7 July 2004

Join teacher Kathleen Wright as she travels close to home for her TREC adventure at Caribou-Poker Creeks Research Watershed north of Fairbanks, Alaska. Kathleen will work with Dr. Carlos Pinkham from the Biology Department at Norwich University in Vermont and other researchers to survey macroinvertebrates in the relatively pristine watershed, which is reserved for ecological, hydrological, and climatic research. The research project will provide baseline information to analyze changes resulting from human impacts.

Kathleen teaches 4th grade at Woodriver Elementary in Fairbanks, Alaska. Kathleen has participated in biological fieldwork throughout Alaska and engages her students in place-based science by emphasizing Alaska and the arctic environment in her classroom. Kathleen believes that "by making connections to the world outside the classroom…we provide bridges that link classrooms to the world."
