What makes a healthy waterway? This program at Twin Pines Conservation Education Center will teach you the parts of quality water such as: salinity, pH and turbidity. It will also help you learn how to look for the macroinvertebrates that play a role in the delicate ecosystem of aquatic life.
We will be conducting field work at a local stream and testing for dissolved oxygen and pH, as well as, looking for macroinvertebrates using kick nets.
Participants are asked to wear clothing appropriate for wading in streams and to be sure to include close toed water shoes. Ages 12 and older. Limit 15. Reservations are required.
