Scientific Survey for Teens at Indian Wells with SoFo

June 28, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$7

The South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) needs your help! They are missing important data about our basic habitats … how they change through the year and over the years. Join Crystal at Indian Wells Beach to collect information on the abiotic factors of soil, water quality, salinity, and elevation, and learn how all these measurable aspects of the environment affect the organisms living there. We will be using (but not limited to) soil test kits, refractometers, pH test kits, magnifiers, and microscopes, and will test for oxygen concentration, wind speed, and wind chill. We will also do population surveys. There will be time, as well, for you to record your notes, thoughts, and ideas in your own journal. Bring one if you have one; if not, we will provide you with a simple one.

Leader: Crystal Possehl, SoFo Nature Educator
