11th Annual Secchi Day on Beaver Lake-Aug. 20, 2016

The public is invited to attend the 11th annual Secchi Day on Beaver Lake from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016, at Prairie Creek on Beaver Lake, five miles east of Rogers, Arkansas, on Hwy. 12. The Science Education Festival includes activities for all ages, with a mobile aquarium, on shore scavenger hunt with prizes, free lunch and ice cream, kayak test rides, microscope activities, a photo contest and more. This event is free. Email awilson@bwdh2o.org.

The event is named for the Secchi Disk, a black and white device lowered into the water to measure clarity. Volunteers with boats help us gather samples that day. This takes about 20-30 minutes, but there’s travel time involved depending on where your sample point is located. Pre-registration well in advance is necessary. If you are interested, send an email now to sbowman@bwdh2o.org.
