California Leaf Pack Training

Saturday, May 21
9 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
at Sacramento Waldorf School, Fair Oaks, California

FREE workshop for middle and high school teachers and environmental educators

How can clumps of slimy leaves in a stream spark stream exploration?

The Leaf Pack Experiment is a fun, hands-on research and outreach tool for non-scientists which demonstrates how our actions on land impact life in streams and water quality. Leaf Pack promotes inquiry-based interdisciplinary watershed education and engages diverse audiences in conducting their own experiments, gathering relevant ecological data, exploring food webs, learning classification skills, using technology to share data, comparing data with those of other communities and applying that information to protect local watersheds.

Join us at our workshop, we’ll show you how!

During this workshop participants will receive an overview of stream ecology and watershed concepts based on research done at the Stroud Water Research Center. Taking our boots to the stream, we’ll then experience hands-on examination of leaf packs with live aquatic macroinvertebrates, including their identification and a look at the Leaf Pack Network® website and database.

Download the flyer for complete details. Register by May 17 by contacting Tara Muenz, tmuenz@stroudcenter.org, 610-268-2153, ext. 301.

Stroud Science Seminar

Steve Golladay, Ph.D.

Wednesday, July 6
at Stroud Water Research Center
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for tours and light refreshments.
Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. and, following Q&As, it concludes by 8:00 p.m.
Event is FREE and open to the public.

Where Has All the Water Gone?

Water Scarcity in a Water-Rich World

Aquatic biologist Steve Golladay from the Jones Ecological Research Center in Georgia will discuss how climate trends affect ecological processes and aquatic communities, the effects that people and their activities have on our freshwater systems, and the importance of aquatic invertebrates and freshwater mussels to the health of our streams.

The lower Flint River in Georgia, where most of Golladay’s work is based, is home to the highest diversity of fish in any Gulf Coast drainage east of the Mississippi and has many other rare species, such as the Halloween darter and five federally protected mussel species.

This area is also the epicenter of a 20+ year water dispute between Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. It is located centrally in the historic range of the longleaf pine forest, one of the most imperiled forests in North America.

For more information, call 610-268-2153, ext. 288 or email jprovinski@stroudcenter.org.
