    You can do water quality testing, you can identify
    invertebrates in that live in the water and they can tell you
    the health of the ecosystem. You can seine to see what kinds
    of species live there. You can take a survey of surrounding
    plants and trees and work on the students identifying them.
    You can study upland and lowland ecosystems and learn about
    wetlands. Last but not least you can talk about watersheds
    and where the water comes from and where the water goes
    within the ecosystem.

    I hope this is helpful
