ADV - Basics of Limnology
East Bethel, MN 55005
Interested in the fundamentals of water monitoring, aquatic ecosystems, and the science of studying them? Come join Cedar Creek ESR grad student and limnologist Seth Thompson to learn about the basics of how and why scientists study freshwater systems. Not only will Seth share some of his own research and results, we’ll get a chance (weather permitting) to visit at least one of Cedar Creek’s lakes and see some of Seth’s equipment in action! You’ll also learn how to get involved with water-related citizen science projects in Minnesota.
The course cost is $15 and includes course manuals and supplies.
Meeting from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. on:
- Saturday, July 29, 2017
