Calling all middle school girls interested in science! Sierra Streams Institute is hosting a hands-on training in stream ecology at Pioneer Park in Nevada City on April 21st. We will be getting in the stream, collecting and identifying aquatic insects, and using the data to determine the health of the stream ecosystem.
Grab a friend and come enjoy the sunshine, learn about your local waterways, and get your feet wet (literally!) in the field of environmental biology!
This event is part of the STREAM Team program for high school and middle school girls. High school students will be present at this event as mentors and female scientists will be on hand to lead the stream investigation.
