Water Quality Monitoring on Cranbrook’s Campus

GLCE ZONE 5 - 12

Students gather water samples from the Rouge River on Cranbrook’s campus to measure water quality using physical and biological assessments. Identification and classification of benthic macro-invertebrates provides data about water quality as students sort, identify, and count creatures harvested from the river bottom. This hands-on experience opens a new world of awareness and scientific inquiry as to the health of local rivers and streams.

Offered Sept. 23-Oct. 29, 2014 and Apr. 20-June 12, 2015. Program occurs outdoors, dress appropriately for the weather. This is a 90 minute program. There is a $4 up charge per student for this program.
