Camp Bournedale - Pond Study
Our location on Great Herring Pond, allows us to offer students a opportunity to study the ecosystem of a freshwater environment, in contrast to our coastal ecology trip. While also introducing students to elements of chemistry and measurements, students will engage in thought provoking conversations about how all these factors can affect the life supported by our fresh water ponds, streams and lakes. The impact of environmental stressors, such as pollution and errosion on the world around us comes into direct question as the students set out to discover just what the data they collect means. All this, and the opportunity to search for and identify often overlooked lifeforms make the class a wonderful addition to the programming here at Bournedale.
Vocabulary will include:
- kettle pond
