American Fork Canyon Ongoing Field Work


American Fork Canyon


American Fork Canyon is an ideal "natural laboratory" for our students. We maintain sampling sites along the main branch of the river. We have a number of Rapid Bioassessment samples from various sites along the river for a number of years. We frequently also sample these areas with Malaise traps and Lindren funnels. We often take Biology 100 (non-majors) and lab members to the Canyon to demonstrate aquatic sampling.
