How living things adapt to changes in the physical environment.

The Kent Street Weir on the Canning River has been in place for nearly 100 years. Students have the opportunity to investigate the role of the Weir, how it has altered the river system and how plants and animals have adapted to changes in the physical environment.  Students compare fresh and salt water ecosystems by conducting salinity tests on either side of the Weir and map changes in vegetation along the River.  

COST: Free to approved Waterwise Schools for up to two classes per school (60 students).

Excursion duration is 1.5 hrs and can be booked from 9:30am to 2:30pm.  Start and finish times can be adjusted to your needs.
