Gratiot Lake Conservancy to offer scholarship for Summer Youth Program in Aquatic Ecology

GRATIOT LAKE -- Gratiot Lake Conservancy is pleased to offer a full Jack and Rita Sandretto Scholarship for a local student to attend the Michigan Tech Summer Youth Program Exploration: Aquatic Ecology at Gratiot Lake from July 27 - August 2, 2014.

Students learn how an ecologist works by participating in hands-on activities out-of-doors. In this field study program for 9th through 11th graders, they collect and analyze aquatic invertebrates and compare water chemistry data from lake, stream, and beaver dam areas. Students camp at Gratiot Lake Conservancy’s Noblet Field Station.
