Highland Elementary student tour Tusculum’s Paul E. Hayden Wetland

Posted on 12 May 2017 by srichey@tusculum.edu

On Wednesday, May 10, Tusculum hosted 32 fourth graders from Highland Elementary School for a tour the Tusculum College Paul E. Hayden Wetland.

The student participants toured the Wetland while identifying a variety of plant species and learning how wetlands are beneficial to the environment and water quality.

They also learned how contaminates can spread downstream, and they were able to talk about muskrats and how they are one of many mammals that surround the wetland.

Students also were able to test water quality and see the difference between the Wetland water quality and the stream’s water quality it empties into. The Middle Nolichucky Watershed Alliance and volunteers partnered with Tusculum to make this tour a success.
