Lake research project planned

SUTTONS BAY — Inland Seas Education Association is recruiting high school-aged boys who will become scientists and crew for two days on board the schooner Inland Seas as they conduct research projects related to the ecology of Lake Michigan.

To accomplish the objectives, students will learn to perform water chemistry analyses; determine the thermal structure of the lake; collect fish, plankton, and benthos; and analyze lake sediment. Students will also record weather observations several times a day for the National Weather Service. Students will enter their data on the shipboard computer for analysis, and prepare and present a short research report. Research results will be posted on ISEA’s website.

Students will also experience shipboard life and the demands of sailing a traditionally-rigged vessel.

The trip will begin in Petoskey and end in Suttons Bay. Those interested should contact Inland Seas Education Association at 271-3077.

Inland Seas Education Association is a non-profit organization based in Suttons Bay, dedicated to science education on the Great Lakes.
