Exploring Aquatic Ecosystems
Sample abiotic factors of a stream OR calculate the water quality of a pond based on the macroinvertebrate fauna. How are the populations affected by these factors? These are two different programs which may be done simultaneously to accommodate two classes.
Located off Reedy Creek Road, Prairie Ridge Ecostation has 45 acres of Piedmont prairie, forest, ponds, a stream and sustainable building features integrated with a wildlife-friendly landscape.
Programs can usually accommodate one or two classes which can be done simultaneously. As intrepid explorers, please be prepared with adequate provisions and apparel for any weather.
