11th Annual Secchi Day-Aug. 20, 2016
The 11th annual Secchi Day on Beaver Lake will tentatively be held 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Science Education Festival does not require a boat. Just come on out to Prairie Creek! The 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 and open to everyone! For information, email email@example.com.
