The Future of Fresh Water
The impacts of climate change on freshwater resources will be one of the most important impacts felt by individuals to ecosystems. Sharing existing regional science, Marc Peipoch, Ph.D., an ecosystem ecologist at Stroud Water Research Center, will bring us into an awareness and understanding of these impacts with an update on the status of freshwater systems. Tara Muenz, assistant director of education at the Stroud Center, will then lead us into a set of hands-on/mind-on activities you can use with groups to start the conversation about climate resiliency in freshwater systems through the lens of aquatic macroinvertebrates!
In order to receive the 6 hrs Act 48, Project WET 2.0 Guide, Climate, Water & Resilience Unit, and Healthy Water Healthy People Guides, participants must attend both dates and complete the assigned homework activities (approx. 2 hours).
Curriculum guides and materials are provided via a generous grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
