Grades 7 - 12

Limnology

Depending on the time allowance, we will begin with an indoor session about the unique properties of H2O , our absolute dependence on it for life, water quality, and aquatic ecology. Outdoors, we will collect and observe aquatic animals and conduct water quality tests at one or more of our aquatic areas (lakes, ponds, bogs, creek, marsh).
