The High School Lake Ecology Students became sailors and scientists overnight. One minute these young men and women were enjoying their summer vacations. The next minute, they are composing a hypothesis, testing water quality and collecting sediment samples from the bottom of Lake Michigan. Take a look below at a group of students diving into a sediment sample taken close to South Manitou Island.
The students found more than just silt, clay and mud when sifting through the sediment. One student found a handful of pesky zebra mussels.
