Investigating Water Quality
Old Woman Creek Reserve
Thursday, Sept 16, 9 am to 3 pm
Visit Old Woman Creek Reserve, one of Ohio's few remaining examples of a natural estuary. We will be looking at this ecosystem which includes a unique estuary environment. As a transition zone between land and water, the site contains a variety of habitats including marshes and swamps, upland forest, open water, tributary streams, barrier beach and near-shore Lake Erie. The Reserve supports a diverse assemblage of native plants and animals representative of freshwater estuaries.
Teachers will conduct biotic testing and analyze historic data to determine human impact on lake Erie's coastal shores.
This workshop is generously sponsored by Ohio Soybean Council and Ohio Corn & Wheat. Lunch is provided. All participants will receive 6 contact hours (.6 CEUs) and a supply kit that includes water identification cards, a water quality kit, and more, worth $100.
* This workshop is for Ohio teachers only.
