MACOUN MARSH UPDATE- OTTAWA, CANADA
While our winter here in Ottawa has been fairly mild, Grade 6 students from St-Laurent Academy have been able to research invertebrates under the marsh ice.
In some drill holes, students have discovered mayfly larvae and phantom midge larvae. Ice thickness has been around 18cm along the shore.
Chickadees are very common, and very tame.
Mustard plants retain their green colouring under the snow.
