LINCOLN, Calif. November 9, 2009 Students from Lincoln High School are helping to study and protect the Auburn Ravine in a program that combines science with environmental stewardship.

For 12 weeks, students have been learning how to monitor the creek in Auburn Ravine and how it can be restored to its natural state. The monitoring process is called SWAMP (Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program) and it is a method to evaluate the health of a stream and its surrounding environment. The students’ work is part of a statewide effort to monitor California waterways. The program is a partnership with ECO:LOGIC Engineering, the City of Lincoln, Lincoln High School and other groups.
