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!

We were thankful for being able to meet two people, Amy and Carl, from the corps. of engineers who were there to test the conditions of the water. They talked to us about how they test the water, what they look for to tell the health of the water, and they even told us how they got into the job positions they found themselves in today. Seeing their equipment and how it works was really cool, and knowing how they got there will really help me when picking my college major.
