Excursion Synopsis
Students will investigate water on a global and regional scale, looking at water distribution, the water cycle and water vulnerability. Comparisions between water supply and water sustainability in Australia will be made, which includes a visit to a local Aboriginal engraving site. 

Water pollution comparisions will be undertaken between two creeks situated at different locations within the Manly Dam catchment area. Tests include soil and water pH and water turbidity. A creek water animal catch will be undertaken to determine the health of the creek by using the animals as indicator species.The impact of human activities on the area will be examined and discussed.

Historical aerial photos, satellite images and topographic maps will be used to identify changes over time and understand catchment management.
