Thanks to a grant from the Kalamazoo chapter of the Audubon Society, Gateway students had the opportunity to conduct water quality test on both Springport Lake and Lake Michigan. While on board the DJ Angus, student also learned about water quality, water sheds and invasive species control.
The Robert B. Annis Water Resources Institute of Grand Valley State University operates two research and education vessels, theD.J. Angus and the W. G. Jackson. The vessels are designed for research and educational activities with group sizes of up to 26 participants on the D. J. Angus and 28 participants on the W. G. Jackson.
The vessels are floating aquatic science laboratories that are primarily used to support the AWRI Outreach Education Program, but they are available for research as well. They are fully equipped for hands-on water quality studies by aquatic researchers, colleges and universities, general public, and fourth through twelfth grade classes.
We are greatly appreciative of this opportunity, and wish to thank the Audubon Society, Kalamazoo Chapter.
