SWOSU Biology Students Participate in Outdoor Classroom for 4th Graders

SWOSU student Saraya Hunt shares information with fourth graders at the recent Outdoor Classroom held at Rader Park in Weatherford.

Southwestern Oklahoma State University students and faculty from the Department of Biology recently held a water quality activity for area fourth graders as part of the Deer Creek Conservation District’s 39th annual Outdoor Classroom.

The event was held April 28 at Radar Park in Weatherford.

SWOSU students shared biology information about aquatic invertebrates that provide insights about the quality of life’s most important resource—water. Students helped the fourth graders identify invertebrates collected from Little Deep Creek and shared introductory information about how aquatic invertebrate diversity can provide insights about the health of water resources.

SWOSU students helping included Eric Ahlemeier, Joseph Alcuitas, Olga Castaneda, Ruby Edsall, Emily Foss, Saraya Hunt, Taylor Javorsky, Michael Knabe and Skye Tilley.
