The Wreck Pond team welcomed local students to Wreck Pond on May 12 and May 15th for interactive , hands-on field trips. Schools that participated included: St. Catherine School (Spring Lake), and Wall High School (Wall Township).
Earlier in the year, Julie, Habitat Restoration Technician for the American Littoral Society, originally met these students in their class rooms to present the Wreck Pond project, as well as lessons on biodiversity, living shorelines, and general watershed science. For their recent visits to Wreck Pond, students rotated through different stations that were meant to mimic similar field work that ALS staffers, and others in the field partake in on a day-to-day basis. Stations include: Seining & Fish Sampling, Water Velocity, Water Quality, and Macro Invertebrates.
Members from US Fish and Wildlife Service, Wreck Pond Watershed Association, and Surf Kings Fishing Club of Spring Lake volunteered their time to help assist throughout the day. For more information on student involvement revolving around Wreck Pond, please contact: Julie@littoralsociety.org
