Water Quality and Environmental Chemistry

Let’s explore our lake!  Campers will discover whether different aquatic life could survive based on the chemistry and hydrology of the water.  Using the tools on the Outdoor Exploration Vehicle, campers will test for dissolved oxygen, pH, phosphates, nitrates and a host of other parameters before figuring out what ranges are required for local aquatic invertebrates and common fishes to survive and thrive.  Open to campers grades 6+.
