The Wonder of It All: Water Quality in Southern Manitowoc County Streams: Students, Data, Issues, and Solutions
The Lakeshore Water institute, a collaboration between UW-Manitowoc and Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership, has been collecting water quality data on streams in southern Manitowoc County over the past five years. During their talk, Rick Hein and Rebecca Abler will discuss the sampling completed by their UW-Manitowoc students, data collected, results, and potential impacts on area beaches and Lake Michigan. They will also identify potential avenues for action to improve water quality and discuss the value of having students working on real, hands-on scientific research in the community. Discussion and question session to follow.
Registration required by May 26th. Call (920) 793-4007.
