Chris Brown, middle school teacher at Glandorf Middle School, has a passion for his students to be immersed in the environment, exposed to new technology and for them to become problem solvers on a day-to-day basis. As a result of this motivation, the Putnam Soil and Water Conservation office joined up with him to organize a field day at The Quarry Farm and the Pandora-Gilboa School wetland. It was a beautiful, sunny day when almost 100 Ottawa and Pandora 7th grade students explored wetland and stream environments. Professionals from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources – Division of Wildlife, Blanchard River Watershed Partnership, Natural Resource Conservation Service and the Putnam County Soil and Water Office joined forces to provide experiences in stream monitoring, frog identification and gigging, wetland soils, chemical water testing and wetland microscopic creatures. Our thanks go to our hosts, The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve and Conservation Farm and Pandora-Gilboa local schools for hosting the event.
