WRN Teens at UW
Tuesday March 12, 2019
We looked at tooth and beak adaptations and used the information we learned to practise identifying the lab's collections of skulls and stuffed birds, then relocated to Tim Hortons to discuss some options for future WRN activities.
Thanks to the UW Ecology Lab and to the students and workers who hosted us!
We went to the Ecology Lab to learn about the day's activities.
Some criteria involved: turbidity (murkiness), conductivity (to measure ions like salt in the water) and pH. Surprising fact: the snow from the salted surface had the most salt. We discussed what our findings meant in practice, including the effects of the reservoir on the water quality of the creek.
