Introduction To River Ecology
The river ways of the Eastern Woodlands have always been a vital resource to the Native Americans of this area, providing food and transport. This program focuses on the ecology of the riverbed, riparian life and the watershed and its relationship to the surrounding area. At the nearby Shepaug River, students will learn to assess the water quality of a river or stream by surveying its benthic macroinvertebrates (insect larvae, adult insects and crustaceans) and also conduct simple chemical analysis. This program provides an introduction to river ecology, demonstrating its importance to the surrounding environment and fostering an awareness of human impact on our natural water systems.
