Auburn Heights Preserve Field Trip

Where Did the Oxygen Go?

Grade Level: 6-8
Program Length: 1 hour

Algae and fish can live in harmony. But when excess nutrients get added to a water system, the balance is lost. In this program, you get to explore the industrial past of the Red Clay creek and the old paper mills and what can cause algae blooms. You also get to learn what happens to an aquatic system when there is an algae bloom, what that means for the oxygen levels, and how you can fix it.

Fee: $4 per student
