Spring Workshop at Alden Research Lab

Representatives from 17 teams had a splendid day in Holden at the Alden Research Lab. Two morning sessions included opportunities to test water quality, use nets to catch macro-invertebrates and assess stream health, prep for Current Issue presentations, ID a fisher (among other critters!) and assess habitat for wildlife use, measure soil horizons and texture and yell MADCAPHORSE loud enough for the whole building to hear.  Alden Senior VP Dave Anderson toured a group through the lab complex and later gave an overview of all the different projects Alden is working on.  In the afternoon, teams visited stations in a “mini-envirothon” to get an idea about what the competition will be like in May.

Thanks Alden, for hosting us again! More pictures on the facebook page
