Looks Like We Made It

As our learning adventure comes to a close I'm left with question about how to apply the knowledge I've gained. I feel very passionate about the ecology close to home. One of the biggest eye-openers this week was the amount of drinking water that is used for irrigation. I believe I can make a big difference in my community by just disseminating what I've learned. On a professional level, I would like to lead a project with students centering on Lake Lowell. Lake Lowell is in the beginning stages of wildlife management and education programs. They lack a biologist and are having difficulty making stewardship decisions because of the lack of answers to their myriad ecology questions. For, instance, they don't even know where the group nesting sites for the grebes are during each breeding season.
What will you take away for your adventure learinging experience and what do you plan to do with the knowledge you've acquired?
