Exploring the Stream and Wetland Ecosystem – Using Ecological Indicators
- Millbrook Marsh Nature Center State College, PA

- 1 Day
Using a systems approach to understanding ecosystems, we’ll delve into classifying these highly valued aquatic ecosystems, and consider why and how we use science-based ecological indicators to monitor change and assess condition of these resources. Activities will involve sampling aquatic macroinvertebrates in headwater streams and aquatic plants in wetlands – no prior identification experience necessary. Techniques will be presented in ways that are easily understandable and transferable to students, and linked to the NGSS. Come join us at the wonderful and fascinating Millbrook Marsh Nature Center!
