Zane State Natural Resource Center with Water Across the World

We spent yesterday with Nicole Hafer and her Muskingum Soil and Water Conservation District’s summer camp students! We have been working with these students for about four years now with our Water Across the World project where we connect them with grade school students in Uganda through videos and letters. Yesterday, we got to teach them a bit about water quality and aquatic organisms in the US as well as Uganda. We even had them lift a Jerri can to experience what retrieving water is like in Uganda vs. just turning on your tap at home. We also talked about the microsystis blooms that are currently plaguing Lake Erie and how it can affect Ohio’s water quality. Afterwards, we got to sample stream invertebrates and do a little fishing! Thanks so much Nicole and students for such a great experience!
