What's Included

All of us in Northern Ohio live in the Lake Erie Watershed, and this week we’re going to see how fun and interesting that can be! Monday will prepare us for adventure as we learn about watersheds and discuss what will be in store for us on our camping trip. Tuesday we will board the ferry in Catawba to sail over to South Bass Island and set up camp for two nights at South Bass Island State Park. Our adventure continues with a splash at Stone Lab’s Aquatic Visitor Center where campers will board a research vessel, conduct a fish trawl and identify fish species in Lake Erie. Campers will also determine the water quality and test their fish-catching skills using a pole and bait. While on the island we will also explore the Lake Erie Island Nature and Wildlife Center, Perry’s Cave and Crystal Cave. We’ll return to the Nature Center at 3 pm on Thursday. Back at the Nature Center on Friday, campers will apply what they learned on the island to identify fish in the Doan Brook and determine its water quality. Tuesday dinner through lunch on Thursday are provided. (includes Stone Lab excursions and admission to the Wildlife Center, Perry’s Cave and Crystal Cave)
