Students of Blue Ridge Virtual Governor's School Biotechnology classes from Fluvanna, Greene, Madison and Nelson Counties took part in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation'sVirginia Watershed Education Program during the first week of November.  Depending on their location, students spent the day in canoes on the Rivanna River, James River or the Charlottesville Reservoir.  Students performed water testing and caught and counted macroinvertebrate organisms to determine the water quality.  BRVGS students from Louisa, Orange and Goochland will take part in similar trips in the spring.  To see a slideshow from the recent trips, click on CBF TRips Fall 2011.
