Description

Participants will learn about common types of aquatic organisms that are typically found in freshwater rivers and streams.  Participants will learn about how organisms are used in research, particularly to detect pollution and assess the health of stream and river ecosystems.

Key Questions

What are some of the common types of organisms found in rivers and streams?

Where in a river or stream can you find these organisms?

Do we affect the diversity and abundance of these organisms, and if so, in what way?

 

Expected Outcomes

Rivers and streams support an amazing diversity of aquatic organisms.

Rivers and streams have unique habitats, and each habitat supports different types of organisms.

Aquatic organisms can be very sensitive to pollution, and the types of organisms found in a river or stream can be used to detect pollution and diagnose the type of pollution that is harming the ecosystem.

I am teaching during the time of this course. Can I sign up and see it later?? Also, I teach Family & Consumer Sciences but we have vertical areoponic gardens in our classroom and are looking to refurbish our outside garden.

How long will the sessions be open to view? We will be learning about environments and environmental changes in about a month and would love to show the recording then.
