Quick Update With More to Come!

Posted on Sep 7, 2016

Hey all! It’s been a while! I just wanted to give a quick update on the Project Wild America Youth Ambassadors with a promise that there will be a lot more info, pictures and posts to come!

Amongst the many surveys conducted by PWA, the students did a number of water quality studies including looking at macro-invertebrates.

Overall the summer went splendidly! We logged hundreds of hours surveying the Chadakoin River Corridor and spent ample time reaching out the the community to showcase all the species found within the area. Through the course of the 6-week program our PWA students successfully identified 286+ different species and conducted nearly a dozen different types of surveys. I’ll have more to report on the results as I sort through data and will share an educational report created by the students themselves!
