Workshop Updates: University of Montevallo Environmental Club

We had a great turnout this Saturday at the University of Montevallo’s Water Chemistry Workshop. We had nearly 30 students and we only expected 20! WOW!

AWW Citizen Trainer Flo Peters was assisted by recent UM graduate, Ryan Ahrendt in teaching Water Chemistry Monitoring principles and practices – both did an AWWsome job! Catch some of the action in the photos below:

AWWsome Trainer Flo Peters teaches students how to properly fill titrators for the Dissolved Oxygen test.

The field work portion of the workshop was conducted at Montevallo’s beautiful Orr Park – y’all should stop by if you are ever in the area!

Tree sculptures created by local artists are hidden among the trails at Orr Park
The section of Shoal Creek that flows through Orr Park was recently restored with the help of UM students and folks from the City of Montevallo. Volunteers removed invasive species and planted native vegetation along the banks. A great site for water chemistry monitoring!

AWW is looking forward to working with UM’s new monitors!

Happy Testing!
