WINONA LAKE — Sixteen members of the Kosciusko County Indiana Master Naturalist Class met in the Dane Miller Science Complex on the Grace College campus last Thursday to learn about lakes, streams and wetlands.
The presentation, given by Dr. Nate Bosch, included water sampling and testing at the Winona Lake Park. Assisting Dr. Bosch was class member and Grace student Adrienne Funderburg and KIMN committee members Pardee Gunther and Chuck Harvout.
Sponsored by the Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), this is the fourth year a master naturalist class has been held in Kosciusko County. After investigating 12 topics specific to the natural resources of our county and the State of Indiana during the year and completion of 24 hours of volunteer community service, members will graduate as certified Indiana master naturalists.
