Fun in the Stream
Students in Dr. Denise Piechnik's fall 2013 Ecology class were busy learning about stream ecology....and maybe getting a little bit wet too!
Emily Southard, Chris Hunt, Ashley Stark-Smith, Nikki Fruehan, and Nick Gier collecting data on the Tunungwant Stream which runs by the campus. Students use their data to perform a “stream-health” analysis.
Dan Swierkowski, Matt Muroski, and Matthew Patterson at work with the nets. Watch out critters!
One of the animals they found was this Dobson Fly larvae.
