Students become citizen scientists at Schlitz Audubon by making observations and conducting surveys at three different bodies of water – an ephemeral pond, permanent pond, and Lake Michigan. These surveys look at the flora and fauna to help determine the health of each water body. After collecting data on water conditions, quality, and wildlife presence, students compare their findings and discover the value of wetlands as they hike to Lake Michigan.
