A Field Trip with Dr. McEwan's Plant Diversity & Ecology Lab

Students listen while the Rivers Institute talks about different land use and assets in the Great Miami Watershed, before beginning their float along the Mad River. Along the way, students will observe a series of changes along the river bank; including natural riparian zones, floodplain, industrial/manufacturing areas and urban riverfronts.

Floating along EastWood MetroPark, students learn about riparian zones and discuss the benefits they have on river systems and water quality.

Student enjoy the fountains at RiverScape in downtown Dayton, at the end of their paddle.
