On Monday, October 22, 2012, Lansdowne Middle School's Grade 8 environmental science students visited Dundee Creek in Kingsville.

During the trip, students traveled along the shoreline, surveyed the watershed, collected samples of submerged aquatic vegetation, and obtained information regarding salinity levels. Students recorded their observations and data to incorporate their findings into future classroom activities.

Coordinated by Denise Fieden, Lansdowne Middle's Science Department chair, with help from Joe Davis, of the Canoe-Based Field Investigation Program, the field trip served as a means to familiarize the students with key concepts that they will study in more depth later in the school year. Explored concepts include food webs, types of ecosystems, and Chesapeake Bay awareness.
