Student Watershed Watch - Student Summit

More than 130 students from upper elementary school to high school met at the University of Toledo Scott Park Campus for the annual Student Watershed Watch Summit on Friday, November 3. They presented results of their water quality testing research and explored careers in environmental science.

The keynote speaker was Jessica Collier, a PhD candidate at the University of Toledo. She told the story of Lake Sturgeon and efforts to bring this amazing pre-historic fish back to Lake Erie and the Maumee River. Carl Nelson, chief scientist at the Imagination Station in Toledo, was the master of ceremonies.
