Limited Space: Sign Up Now for Outdoor Event in Mountain Lakes
How often have you wondered about the the water quality of your local lakes or rivers? Are they “clean” because they have been chemically treated and, if so, is that good for local residents and the critters that share our waterways?
Naturalist Rich Hoffman will answer these questions and more on July 13 when the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee holds a special “Water Study” event for students and adults, who will explore the local fresh water biology and learn scientific ways to test water.
You will be guided by Rich Hoffman, who is an instructor at the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center, as well as a member of the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee.
The Water Study will take place on Saturday, July 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Birchwood Lake in Mountain Lakes. Participants will explore the lake with Hoffman, and are asked to wear either boots or footwear that can get wet. The group will meet at the entrance to Birchwood Beach at 10 am.
There is limited space for participants, so you should sign up quickly, so as not to be disappointed if the free session sells out. You can sign up by emailing [email protected].
