Students have spent time monitoring a branch of the Rouge River through the Rouge Educational Project and will begin to monitor local vernal pools with the Vernal Pool Patrol in mid-May. Additionally, they have worked on a large project remediating the storm water retention area. We are collecting data to record changes in biodiversity in the area where we removed invasive Phragmites and planted native flowering species to attract pollinators. Students are using the iNaturalist, eBird and MISIN apps on their electronic devices to help identify and report native and invasive species they find in the different areas we investigate, and will use the ArcGIS app to collect and enter real-time information about the vernal pools into a database. The information they learn about and collect, helps them understand more about wetlands and our watershed overall, but also helps contribute data to the body of information that help researchers learn new patterns and identify areas of concern. These authentic experiences allow students to interact with "real" scientists in the field, as they participate in the garden project and other watershed experiences. This gives them the opportunity to learn about and be more aware of possible careers in science. They will, at least, be more likely to agree that someone "like them" can be a scientist. Ideally. This encourages many more of my students to pursue careers in science.
