Biological indicators like benthic macroinvertebrates (BMIs) indicate how healthy a stream is. In the Stream Monitoring and Stewardship Program students identify BMIs, measure physical and chemical parameters and discuss ways to keep streams healthy.
Come explore the microscopic organisms living in Lake Champlain. In the Keeping the Balance lab students will study the Lake Champlain ecosystem food dynamics, native and aquatic nuisance species, and best management practices.
Nothing beats a study of your local stream than getting your hands and feet immersed in it. Our Stream Monitoring and Stewardship Program introduces watershed science, helps create a local stream study and develops water stewardship project.
