Wildwood Lake Water Testing

Tue Aug 9, 2022
10:00am to 11:00am ET
All Ages

Engage in an outdoor field study at Wildwood Lake where educators will teach you how to take a scientific water sample in the field and test the sample to determine levels of cyanobacteria, nitrate, phosphate, pH, dissolved oxygen, and temperature of the water.

They will also examine samples from the floor bed of the water bodies to see if participants can identify macroinvertebrates and then learn about what those organisms can indicate about the health of the ecosystem. Learn about the precious nature of our limited fresh water supply here on earth and engage in a conversation about local ecosystems.
