Watershed Explorers (Grades K-6)

Date: June 23, 2014
Time: 7:45 AM - 5:00 PM

Watersheds are one of the most basic units of our natural world - they sustain life, supply our drinking water, support industry and provide habitat to plants and animals.  Activities that occur in one portion of a watershed directly impact every organism living in downstream waterways and land.  This hands-on course explores the essential role of water, the interdisciplinary nature of environmental issues, and strategies for watershed protection.  Key topics include human impact on the watershed, water movement through the forest, applied stream ecology, water quality monitoring, drinking water quality, ground water issues, global water issues, lake ecology and wetlands.  Field experiences include visits to Proctor and Gamble, Lazy Brook Park, Lackawanna River and Lake Manataka.
