Creeks & Squeaks! A two-part adventure in Forest Park!

Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 5:00 PM-9:00 PM

Junior Academy members join scientists/enthusiasts and endangered species biologists for an Evening of Adventure!

Join CH2MHILL, an international engineering, construction, and operations firm, in increasing awareness of water quality issues through support of World Water Monitoring Day. Geologists, engineers and other scientists will be on hand to discuss the significance of the sampling. We will use different methods to collect the data, and discuss important scientific concepts such as accuracy, precision and reproducibility of the results.

CH2MHILL designed many aspects of the new waterways throughout the Forest Park and established water quality objectives and best practices to improve the water quality of the park and enhance the biodiversity of the system. Testing kits provided.

Join the hunt for endangered bats in Forest Park!

An Endangered Species Biologist, Bree McMurray, from Missouri Department of Transportation and Shelly Colatskie from Missouri Department of Conservation will catch bats and teach students the tricks of navigating in the dark and hunting by sound. You may even get to help hoist the huge net!
