Freshwater Academy is a week-long camp that gives high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience and fieldwork in Northwestern Pennsylvania's waterways. Students spend their days studying biology and freshwater ecology at a level they can't achieve in the classroom. They will get wet, they will get dirty, and they will love it!

Today we went to Sugar Lake to canoe and learn about the plants. Brian pilarcik showed and talked about the invasive species of plants that floated on the water. We also visited a beaver lodge and learned about how the beavers feed in the winter when the ice freezes over.
