Virtual Field Trip – LOXAHATCHEE RIVER DISTRICT’S WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITY: A BIOLOGICAL PROCESS
The River Center is offering virtual field trip programs this Fall! On select Wednesdays our River Center educators are providing specific topics for our virtual experiences.
Our mission is to foster a sense of environmental stewardship for the Loxahatchee River’s diverse watershed with quality programs, educational exhibits, and meaningful events.
Program Times: 10 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
This program is a trip to the Loxahatchee River District’s wastewater treatment facility where students will learn about the biological process to create irrigation quality water for the community. Educators will investigate the nitrogen cycle, perform water quality testing, and discover new industrial technology that is used on a community scale. Students will recognize the importance of water reclamation in relation to water conservation and those that are in the wastewater treatment field.
Recommended: Grades 9-12 (adaptable for 6-8)
