Watershed and Wetland Study for grades 8-10 on Friday, July 22nd, from 2pm-4pm
Students investigate their local watershed and wetlands, and learn how these ecosystems interact and connect among the Earth’s hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and atmosphere. Students learn why watersheds and wetlands are essential while documenting their biological, chemical, and physical characteristics. Students will conduct a series of water parameter tests, discover some of the microscopic life found in the Chesapeake, and understand why this data matters. The data students collect becomes part of an ongoing monitoring project at the Environmental Center.
Courses will start promptly at the time they are scheduled. Parents/Guardians must attend with your student. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a water bottle. If you have any questions, contact Environmental Center Director Meredith Maloney at (410) 939-4800 .
