Alberta Parks

Limnology (Water) Study

Day Use is permitted. Outhouse facilities are open where feasible - be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Campgrounds open, starting June 1 at 50% capacity. Second RV units will not be permitted on campsites. We are monitoring our actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed.

Students participate in a day-long water quality and limnology study that provides comparisons between wetland and lake ecosystems. They study the biodiversity of different water bodies and link their findings to abiotic water quality parameters. We also discuss potential careers with Parks and other careers that use the skills learned during the study.
