During this fieldtrip the students will learn how they share our water with fish and wildlife. The water experts from the District of Invermere show the students how the water is stored, diverted from the Patty Ryan Lakes and then treated for our use. A biologist will help the students to identify the different fish that live in Patty Ryan Lakes and Abel Creek. At both stations, the students will learn about why limiting our water use is important. At the sewage treatment plant, water experts from the District of Invermere show the students how their waste water is treated before being released back into the environment. They will also learn about many types of birds that nest near the water treatment area.
This is specifically for grade 2.
