Hands on Lake Studies

High School students from across the country get a chance to experience hands on lake studies while attending a semester at Conserve School, an environmentally focused semester school in the northwoods of Wisconsin. The school’s 1200 acre campus has access to eight lakes, providing students with a variety of settings to develop their water quality skills. From rowboats and canoes students measure water quality with secchi disks and tools for gathering samples from deep in the lakes. Near shore students use dip nets to gather macroinvertibrates to study.
