Michigan Sea Grant will be presenting to fifth grade students and teachers about how to use FieldScope and Teaching Great Lakes Science. Attendees will learn how it relates to water quality, specifically in the Clinton River Watershed.
The Clinton River Water Festival is an educational and enjoyable learning experience for fifth-grade students from the Clinton River Watershed community schools in Oakland County. The festival design allows students to learn about the central role water and the Clinton River play within the region. Some of the topics that are explored during the festival include: storm water, waste water treatment, soil erosion, wetlands, creeks and streams, habitat, as well as sources of pollution. Several governmental and environmental agencies work with Pre-College Programs to plan and execute the festival at Oakland University.
