“With transportation costs an issue (for many of the region’s schools), it’s not always easy to conduct field trips,” Hickey said. “A lot of these resources are within walking distance of the school.
“Students don’t always have the opportunity to travel throughout the basin, but they can visit a pond, a stream or a historical spot in close proximity to their school.
“There is always the opportunity to focus on one area” as a sample of the entire lake basin.”
