Presented at 2017 OAGEE Fall Conference from November 10th to November 11th, 2017
Ever wonder what happens to data collected by technical staff in the field? Where does it go, how is it used, who can access the information? The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) is continually involved in various kinds of monitoring activities: water quality testing, animal population surveys, groundwater and stream flow monitoring, and lake and river level monitoring. The information collected from these activities is used to track trends and predict future changes in the environment, like climate change. The information also alerts us to identify and locate the origins of problems. And now this information is available to everyone! Come and learn more about our newly launched, publically accessible data portal. This interactive, indoor/outdoor and activity-based session will provide participants with an opportunity to gather data in the field, compare it with our data and do some analyses. Information will also be shared about how the data portal can be used to augment your current teaching resources and provide a local context for concepts being taught. Each participant will receive a Teacher Resource Kit with materials to extend this session for use in the classroom.
