Get your fill of the science craze! Explore agriculture and horticultural sciences all year round with Science Saturdays, a Saturday morning science workshop to explore concepts with hands-on projects and experiments. Join us and dive into topics like water quality, photosynthesis, plant chemistry, animal science, food science and more!

March: How Clean is that Water?

In November's Science Saturday, we explored where the water in our ecosystems ends up. This month, we will dive deeper into the world of water and explore water quality! A healthy environment is one in which the water quality of the water sources support a rich and varied community of organisms and doesn't harm public health. Water quality influences the way we use the water for drinking, swimming, or commercial purpose. Learn how to be a better steward of this important environmental, economic and social resource in our world!
