SENECA LAKE EARTHDAY

APRIL 21 , 2016

We are planning to team up with SCA (Student Conservation Association) on  Seneca Lake. We will collect chemical and biological data at four points on Seneca Lake.  This experience will provide the participant a hands on experience of doing severtal chemical tests and macroinvertebrate identification.  Volunteers should plan to bring a bag lunch and wear appropriate attire for the day. t. This will be a rain or shine, but having fun is guaranteed. The data collected will be made public on our website  and sent in to NYSDEC with our annual report.IMG_2186IMG_2207

What a great evening (February 24, 2016) sharing our aquatic work with the folks at Gregg school in Corning,NY.!!! Students enjoyed the digital microscopes, doing transparency testing, and water surface tension testing. Prior to the event I collected water from the Chemung River and did several chemical tests.
pH 7.5 slight base
TDS 134 ppm
Hg .oo1 ppm
metals under 10 ppm
CO2 18ppm
nitrate nitrogen 2ppm (concern)
