WONDERS OF THE WATERSHED, 10 AM 12 PM
Join our education staff to learn about watersheds by building a model
and making it rain in the sample watershed. Then we will follow the
travels of the water in the Wachusett Reservoir Watershed, using maps,
to see how the water gets from Stillwater Farm to the Wachusett
Reservoir and then on to Boston or the Atlantic Ocean.
After studying the watershed we will then take a brief hike and
see the actual Wachusett Reservoir Watershed in action.

STREAM STUDY, 10 AM 12 PM
We can use both chemistry and biology to determine the water quality
of a stream. The Stillwater River supplies water to the Wachusett
Reservoir. We will take water samples of the river to test them to see
what they tell us about the acidity, oxygen, and other features of the
water using chemistry. Then we will capture the live creatures of the
river to come to a decision on the quality of the rivers water.

VERNAL POOL EXPLORATION, 10 AM 12 PM
After learning some of the fascinating facts about vernal pools, those
temporary bodies of water used by special animals, we will take our
sampling equipment and explore a couple of these interesting habitats.
Searching for amphibians, reptiles, insects & other
invertebrates in this special place can be exciting. We will also look
for tracks and signs that other animals and possible predators use
