GREEN LAKE ASSOCIATION MAINE
This program will be back in the summer of 2022. Check back with us next year so you won't miss out on the fun!!!
Eager Advocates of Green Lake Ecology
The Green Lake Association is proud to announce that this summer there will be a summer series of
workshops (June-August) that will introduce the future generation of lakeside residents and/or users to
various aspects of our lake that make it unique. There will be two sessions for each workshop
(one for grades K-5 and one for grades 6-12).
Participants will learn about history of the lake, how to take care of the lake and how to maximize the benefits
that our beautiful lake has to offer. At each session, participants will also create a hands-on project to
take home and share with their families.
Planned workshops include
Saturday...June 15, 2019
Students will make a simple solar cooker using only recyclables and learn that it does not necessarily need to be hot outside in order to use solar energy to cook. Students will make a few "smores" while they learn how to increase the efficiency of their cookers.
Saturday...July 20, 2019
Students will learn the difference between a food chain and a food web. Students will also investigate the various flora and fauna found around the lake and construct their own model of a food web that exists in Green Lake, as well as gain an appreciation for just how delicate this balance is and how eliminating an organism can affect a food web.
Saturday...August 17, 2019
Students will learn what an invasive species is, the positive and negative roles they can play and the changes that often occur as a result of their introduction into a new environment. Students will learn the concept of competition as well as the other various types of relationships and the effects invasive species can have on these relationships.
