Black River Watershed Monitoring and Management Planning

Environmental Science Students partner in monitoring and developing a watershed management plan for their local Black River Watershed
Watershed Studies

Alcona High School Environmental Science students are partnering with the Northeast Michigan Council of Governments (NEMCOG) and others in monitoring and developing a watershed management plan for their local Black River Watershed.  Starting in 2010, and continuing during the current school year Alcona students have been sampling various sites on throughout the watershed. 

Through their water quality monitoring efforts, students are contributing data toward a larger watershed management planning effort facilitated by NEMCOG with funding support through the Michigan Coastal Management Program, Department of Environmental Quality, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  Student learning efforts have been supported also through the Toyota-sponsored 4-H20 water quality education effort, providing resources and supplies in support of student sampling activities.
