Lake Metonga Environmental Day
On Tuesday, Sept 18th, the Environmental Science Class traveled to the South end of Lake Metonga to participate in the Lake Ecology Field Day. The students broke up into groups with Crandon and Wabeno students and were able to participate in eight different station events. Two of the stations were actually on Lake Metonga and students were able to learn about Lake Invasive species from Mr. Harry Resch and Mr. Les Schramm. The students were able to do a fish count aboard two shocker boats from the Mole Lake and Potawatomi Environmental departments. Camille Dawidowicz, our Foreign Exchange student from Paris was able to participate and said it was her first time on a boat. She also was able to net a walleye.
Local Biologist, RT Krueger once again brought his menagerie of aquatic macroinvertebrates for the students to investigate. Officer Chad Mullis from the Forest County Sheriff’s Department presented Lake Laws and Regulations. Students were also able to play Bat Jeopardy with Nicole Shutt from the US Forest Service. Although it was a little cool and gloomy, the students had a great day of learning on the lake!
