There was grass growing on the stump there for the grass was taking the water from the tree roots for the grass to grow.I also saw a few pop cans and a old oil barrle a toke a few pics. There are many things that could harm the enviroment. This trip that we down to the pond made me realise how much junk was in the pond. I saw 8 cans and 1 barrel and a few frogs. Reply elizabeth on September 14, 2011 at 9:39 am Human impact was seen at the pond that we looked at we saw, dead fish which is due to human interaction, also lot’s of garbage from human interactions. There are hardly any turtle’s frogs or fish that I could see, also due to human interaction. I also saw that because the trees are growing on a slant they still grow upward toward the sun. There was also lot’s of gross green slim which is caused by too much nutrients in the water, it also was kind of smelly. There was a tree stump right in the water, which looks like there used to be a tree there but was cut down to make the bridge we walk over. There were also lots of tree branches in the water which is probably from all the windy days and nights we have had. There was also a huge dumpster can in the water which clearly must have been put there by a Human. These are the interactions that we, humans, have with the environment and the interactions nature has on the environment.

Dead tree and the animals ( frog and turtle) The frog and trutle live in the dead tree Human impacted on nature People throwing trash in the water By doing that unwanted chemicals are let into to the or animals try to eat it and die. Car oil leaking into the river This lets in unwanted chemicals in the water killing trees and animals. building the bridge At the time in could have done something to the river but it look like it has addapt to it. People putting or dumping waste into the water . By putting or dumping waste into the water it will kill the animals and the eco system the live in. Reply gilbert on September 14, 2011 at 10:08 am The stuff we found at the pond was disgusting there were barrels, garbage bags, the odd dead animal due to polution, etc. Although the lilypads do seem to be thriving quite well but there were no live animals to be seen.

Reply Kathleen on September 14, 2011 at 10:11 am When i was looking around the pound i saw bugs grouped together and eating the decaying pound moss. Small fish were picking the bugs off the water surface. A bird was using the water as bath to clean it’s self. There were large empty snail shells the were being used as homes for spiders. There was a lot of human impact to the pound, we have dropped garbage in the water and waste that the can hard and kill the animals the are living in the pound, i even saw a dead fish stuck in a cookie wrapper.
